Hi Mark! The kit was from china! Only took a week and 1/2 to get here! Its an Academy kit called LEISURE BIKE SPRINTER! It only cost £11.99 including postage! Its quite well detailed with a choice of handles and brakes and accessories! Its also got brake cables although they are a little bit thick! I might replace them with thiner types later on!

Have been to Hornby at Margate a few times as I live in Herne Bay in Kent! The collection of pocher kits is huge as it contains all of the models that were available! Hornby bought out Riverossi whe originaly owned Pocher a few years ago! Here are a few pics of there displays!
This is a 1/8th scale full metal version of the Rolls Royce used for the moulds!

Hi Alex! This is the only other way to show you the pics of roof lining! Its a little wrinkled but could be smoothed out! I also have an ejector roof lining of the same colour cloth fixed to plasticard! It has double sided tape fitted so you can fix it to roof! Needs a bit of a clean but is ok! If you want these items I will do a swap for some 1/8th scale metal car bits! I will leave it up to you to decide what the roof parts are worth! Postage will probably be the same for us both so we will just swap! If your interested let me know! Best wishes John!
