The finish line is almost near! Front and rear body panels have been connected to the framework. Everything went pretty much smoothly but I’ve noted some issues below.
When installing the rear section to the frame, don’t try to install the entire piece after completing page #28. I tried for 15-20 minutes to install without success, the roadblock was the intakes just behind the rear quarter windows. My solution is to remove both intakes, one from either side. Install the rear section then re-install the intakes. Ta-da!
Caution on the rear hatch door. The paint is very thin around the edges; I noticed some paint has been removed. Pocher doesn’t provide touch-up paint in the kit, I wish they did. I’ll source something in orange soon enough. Panel gaps are acceptable once in a closed position. The open/close function works great as well, as does the rear functioning spoiler.
Them bloody metal decals! Again I screwed up the rear Lamborghini logo on the bumper. Set it on a slight angle and the decal wasn’t forgiving when I tried to align. So I removed it. I’ll source another through Pocher or online in good time. Does anyone have the secret to metal decal install success?
The next update will most likely bring the finished product. I estimate a good 40 hours of work to date – 10 days on average 4 hours per day. Tune into DiecastSociety.com for more updates on the Pocher Project real soon. Part six to come…
