I don't get how Pocher's giant 1:8 cars and this 1:4 bike can have such awesome detail and fine metal castings, while CMC and even more Exoto charge the same kind of money for their much smaller models (€350 to €500 for the high end CMCs and Exoto 156, even more for their 159 and 246). Looking at the closeup photos of the Ducati (thanks rac3r) the metal parts are very detailed, in spite of the odd shapes, and are accurate down to the beveling on the edges of the fairings.
Hmmm, I think if you were to (re) read my thread on building the Pocher Aventador you wouldn't be saying that. Lots of details are sadly lacking, if they had the same detail as Exotos or CMCs they would however be extremely expensive. Think Amalgam or even more.
They dumbed down the engine, left out lots of engine parts or moulded pipes that went to nowhere. All to keep the cost down. To be honest once the car is built you no longer see the engine. Several decals are 'missing' and the DVD player could have been molded. Instead its a wrong colour decal.
At some point in time though there will be trans kits made for these models to bring them from 'Bburago level' up to 'AUTOart level'. A lot can be done if you're in to scratch building and this is what I do like about the Pocher.
Hmm ok thanks Rob for that tip, to be honest it's been some time since I visited your Aventador build thread. I'll go through it again, but for now will take your word regarding the detail quality of the Pochers. I guess my enthusiasm was a little too much on seeing the Panigale brakes
