Pocher 1:8 Lamborghini Aventador w/ AUTOart 1:18 Aventador

Post by [KRAFTIG] » Sat Feb 15, 2014 2:36 pm

Well I finally completed the Pocher project, the 1:8 scale Lamborghini Aventador is complete! I'd say a good 50 hours went to building this mammoth beast. It was nothing but fun and an absolute thrill to go through the various stages of the build. The Pocher/Hornby team has been nothing less that great, "Resurgence of a Legend" is very true! Thanks again gentlemen for the opportunity.

A full review will be coming shortly... Here's a few quick pics with the AUTOart equivalent in 1:18 scale. Enjoy!

Not sure if it's just me but I feel like the stance is a little high. Could it be lowered? Other than that it looks superb. Did you find a display case for it?

I think the stance is spot on when comparing to 1:1, though a little more aggressive would be nice. I'm not sure if it can be lowered without some trick engineering.

Yes I just send over my final measurements this morning. Enough clearance to display with doors open :)

The ride hight is right on. Don't touch it. It's not a led sled.
