Hi all,

I’ve managed to get hold of 3 Pocher kits Rolls Royce, Mercedes and an Alfa.

The Rolls and Merc are already built and will need a strip down and rebuild and some new parts, the Alfa is in bits and I’m sure it’s missing bits.

The question I have is two fold, 1st does anyone have the manuals for these I now I can download these but looking at the download version they don’t look complete. 2nd the Paul koo dvd is it worth the £40 that they seam to go for or does anyone have a copy they don’t want anymore.

I second Marvins website modelmotorcars.They also have build guides on CDs that are cheaper than the Koos ones.The Koos ones are very good and definitely worth the money-Just to help you avoid the MANY frustrations that are inherent in building Pocher cars.

Captain thanks for the offer, yes I do have the Ducati still in its box with a copy of the Paul on usb plus some extras and new rear wheel nuts that I 3D printed.

One day I might get around to building it and the Busa.

Thanks for the info Carl, it's nice when someone has had one of the items and can give a little insight into it. Smile

Agree on the weather - its just so dark. We used to get some cold winters but bright days, this year just seems to have been day after day of darkness.

Hope you manage to get yourself sorted with the manuals and missing kit parts.

Pochers instructions are probably the WORST cat kit instructions ever.They are really hard to follow and in many cases the order of construction causes headaches.The CD guides are essential for the trickier Pochers like the Rolls and the Alfas.

Paul Koos instructions are worth every penny. He put a LOT of effort and thoughts into these and they are immensely helpful.

Hi guys I have another question.

Just regarding the wheels, I'm going to have to rebuild these as there falling apart and one is in bits.

I don't have the jig for these so I was wondering if anyone has one and could post some photos so I can see if I can make one using one of the prebuilt wheels as a reverse jig.

I've built the Jag and the wheels on that I found easy to build.

Any help would be appreciated.

Apparently the Pocher wire wheels are a nightmare to assemble.The fit isnt great and the jig never worked well.Modelmotorcars makes a resin set oh wheels so you dont have to stack all those plastics rings

Hi Carl,

Yes I've seen modelmotorcars but at £40 each for the Alfa and £45 each for the rolls that's £240 + £225 total £465 plus you still need to use the pocher wheel jig in order to build them.

I'm happy with how the pocher wheels look but just need to rebuild them, if I can't make a jig then I'll buy a set from eBay.

I have the Pocher sedanca kit.I am not sure if the jig is the same for each car, but I can take a look at that and 3d design one and email you the .stl if you like. I am sure it is a pretty simple design.

Hi Carl, thanks for the offer.

I've spent the day stripping down the Alfa into sub sections, there's a lot of bits missing and some of the wheel bits like the break units.

So I'm going to have to at some point buy a set of the plastic parts which include the jig.

So I've finally managed to work out what I believe is missing from the Alfa, unfortunately it's a lot and not sure if it will be worth looking for the parts but I'll keep thinking about it.

I've contacted both pocher.net and paul koo about the bits, pocher.net recon it will cost more to get the missing bits then to buy a complete kit.

So at the moment it's a no no 😞

So at some point I'll strip the Merc or Rolls down and see what's what.
