Pocher caliber detailing
Posted by Stew on Thursday, May 8, 2008 11:01 PM

Ok, here's the reasoning that led to this Community Build Project. I may never end up building a legendary Pocher kit and for me the best part of modeling is recreating all the details of a cars full size counterpart, which is what Pochers are know for.

 These are the rules:

  1. Any scale is welcome but this build is more suited to 1/16 and larger scales
  2. You have to make at least one non functional part of your model functional. For example, cutting out molded in front suspension components and making them functional. Or making the steering wheel turn the front wheels. Or making the window cranks roll the windows up and down. Or making the parking brake engage the rear brakes. Or make the seat adjustments functional
  3. Some models already have some of these features, so you'd have to be making significant changes to something that's already functional in order for it to count, or pick something else on one of these kits.
  4. Model does not have to be built to completion, but the component you're going to "Pocher" has to be completed.
  5. We're going for quality, so you want to make it mimic the real thing as much as possible

 End date is Thanksgiving, November 27, 2008. Not as long as some builds but we're not necessarily doing complete models, but Pocher quality sub assemblys.
