Well, I found a few hours yesterday to start the Pocher Aventador build. The first step is to download the revised assembly manual found on Pocher’s website. The second step is to familiarize yourself with the various icons and warnings throughout the assembly manual.
TIP – I highlighted any step that required special attention or application of glue, just to make sure I didn’t miss a key step.
Some items/tools that helped me with the build so far include the trusty Dremel 4200 with a fine sanding accessory. This allowed me to clean any small debris left on the part once removed from the shipping grid.
Side cutters, flat cutters and your trusty screwdriver. All these items are relatively cheap and can be purchased at the local hobby store or hardware store.
And finally Micro brushes. This will allow you to pinpoint where you place the glue for various bits of the build. Again, 10 pieces for less than $3. Highly recommended!
So what I’ve completed so far includes the seats, centre console and upper dash. Word to the wise, snap the seats into place before you add the outer rubber seat covers. This step proved challenging on my part but I finally managed to snap both seats into place. What is a cool feature here is the seats are adjustable front to back with quite a good amount of travel.
Pocher allows the end-user to choose the left or right-hand drive. Since I’m from Canada I went with a left-hand drive. The kit includes two dash options.
The next step is to add some water and metal decals on the dash and centre cluster. Just educating myself on these bits before I attempt the install. Baby steps…
I’ve included some photos of the inner working parts of the model before. Quite impressive to say the least. I can’t wait to get down to the meat and potatoes of the build!
Well, that’s all for now folks. Tune in to DiecastSociety.com for more updates on the Pocher Project real soon. Part three to come…
