Pocher Lamborghini Aventador HK101 - Defect ( no door holes)

Postby MasterRich » Sun Mar 18, 2018 8:57 am

Hey guys has anyone come across this problem? I purchased the Pocher Lamborghini Aventador Shiny White HK101 in October last year and I now realised that the recess holes (both sides) where the spring loaded hinges are meant to fit into is all plated up on the K002-01 - White die cast cabinHK101-K002-01. The hole has not been cut through when this was made/casted. I cannot complete the model and I would have to strip the entire model down, and re-order new parts dash, seats etc to fit into the new die cast cabin. I have attached photos of the defect to my model, where the hole has not be cut out and a photo of someone elses kit (nero) where you see the large hole. What do you think I should do? The company won't help me, from where I bought it from so I only have one option and that is to speak to the supplier.

Hi MasterRich, I would contact Pocher direct, see what they say on the matter, is it possible the door hinges on your particular version of the Lamborghini do not need the holes?

It won't fit, the screws just won't reach the holes. I can only screw in one screw but the hinge is on an angle (sticks out) so there is no way it can fit. I'm hoping to hear from them tomorrow. Kinda sucks though :(

I don't know if it helps, but K009-03 & K009-06 (left and right hinges) are mistakenly swapped over in the instructions.

I've just had a look at Paul Koo's Aventador DVD. That clearly shows holes for the hinges to fit in, and the notes make a reference to making sure that the hinges don't foul the firewall under the holes or the doors won't sit flush. It certainly looks like you've got a defective part. However, it seems strange that both sides are the same. I've not seen anybody else have the same problem.

Have you tried pushing with an pointed object or similar. Could it be a bit of flash over the hole? It does look quite thin on the photos of the parts. Unfortunately I don't have my kit to hand to check. It's 6000 miles away :(

It might well be worth a call or message to Hornby, although there are rumours that they have sold Pocher to a Dutch company. Failing that, can you drill out the holes, or grind them out with a Dremel or similar?

Hi yea I have drilled a 10mm hole but it needs to be bigger. I already contacted Hornby - pocher and they are going to check their spares and see if they get a replacement for the whole cabin section but he says it may not be possible. So then he needs to contact the store where I bought it to explain that I need to be issued a refund. I'm doing more damage drilling into my model and I shouldn't have to be doing that to a £500 model :(

Ordered a new cabin chassis had to strip everything down and re-build it on the new cabin that has the holes.. All completed :)

Does anyone know how to get the bonnet (rear) to stay up?
