I look forward to your build littlefron as I was gifted one by my wife in 1988 and have still not finished it, here is the chassis fully built.......

I have though had a nightmare with the black gloss paint and am at present stipping it all of with brake fluid. Let me say though that this a super kit but we have moved a few times since it's purchase and it takes a lot of patience and willpower to get back into it!

That's how long it takes me to do a full detail 1/24 build...

Looking forward to seeing your project. There have been precious few Pochers built or shown on this forum.

I have heard of Pocher but never seen one so this will be neat to watch.  You have made the engine look like the real thing.

Now that engine is just beautiful, no argument.  That is museum display quality work, and I'll be following this keenly.  Cheers.

assembly slowly start , even if I did a pre assembly before, it was only the major part, all the details to be added are another challenge as the paint ( Alclad ) is quite fragile and doesn't like to be over manipulate.

thank you for your comments... 

next step the fitting of the doors , have to be smart as paint will be added, to make sure to have a close no gape between frame and door panel , this is a challlenge as am not sure how many coat will be needed , ( primer / undercoat/ followed by 2 to 3 coat ) ..improvisation will be for a change ahahhaah
