Stripped down body off chassis. Detailing is really nice on this model. I'm going to have to partly strip chassis down to clean it. Its quite dusty. All engine and chassis is complete apart from steering wheel which I've got coming from America.

Gear box and pedals. Brake pedal and hand brake actually operate the mechanical brake's but need alot of adjusting!!

It looks as if the original builder never painted anything.
Are you going to strip it and paint all the parts, which any Pocher deserves?
It would be a shame to leave it all 'plastic'.

Great find though.
Have fun.

I'm going to have to strip it down to clean it up for a start so I might as well paint the parts that need painting. Mind you. If I'm going to build Hitlers car I'm going to have to strip it right the way down to alter the chassis and main drive! I'm still thinking about it as it would be quite a major mod for me as I would also have to build the body as well, but would be great at being a one off model.

Close up. It does include the Mercedes emblem which fits in the middle of the boss but have left it out for now as Im going to strip the model right down to clean and possibly paint.
