I just got this kit, very cheap price. It was started, and I think to build it straight out of the box. In the future, probably I will upgrade it, but for now I want have fun only... :)
Soon some pics!

My record for the fastest F40 build was about 30 hours and my slowest 650 hours. I think you are beating my fastest record Briziogringrin......it looks good!

This is the last picture before finish it.

Now I need to prepare a place where take pics of it. The set where I take picture of my models, usually 1/24 and smaller, is to small for it...

Hello Brizio,

wow! Fast and clean built.1clap1Sometimes one has to take a break from complex projects and just have fun.
Good thing is, you can still disassemble it again and improve things, when you are in the mood.

Cheers

Hi Brizio, I've always wanted to know what the Pocher Ferrari kist are like, so I was hoping for a detailed online build here1gramps1. Not to worry, though. The finished model looks great. Please show us more pics. Chris

I am thinking about getting the Pocher Testarossa as an in-between-kit for a longer period now, but heard different opinions about the quality. Ranks from lousy to acceptable, especially regarding the fit of the body panels and paintjob and lucky as I am, I will buy the trashiest glue-bomb on the market.he1he

@CTDavies, This is my first Ferrari, so I don't know if the Testarossa is better or the same (talking about the kit), the F40, confirm, what I read about it, that is pretty much a Bburago in large scale, with lack of details. This week I'll take some more pics of it.

@3.Star, I don't know the Testarossa kit qualitiy. The F40 had a good paint job, I just wax it, and looks good.

Michael,

I build both: the F40 is slighty better than the TR: they probably learned their lesson from the previous car....their first diecast.

@Ton,

thank you for the information. I am really torn between two horses now. When my thoughts went to build the F 40, I always had your Autograph F40 in mind, which made me a little faint-hearted, because this one raised the bar so high, that I can dance Limbo upright.(Tend to improve a model as far as possible, so I'd have another lifetime project on the workbench). Brizio and your info encourages me now, to rethink about the F40 and build it oob first and fix the imperfections when I am dead and gone.

Cheers

Michael

Hey Michael, IMO every member of this forum with successful experiences with Pocher classics should be able to assemble the F40 with the Autograph kit. It is not that complicated as it looks and you don't need special skills . The only thing you need is time, stamina and patience (to understand the manualhe1he). Most of the kits are on the shelve because people did not have one or more of these capacities. That have said, here is some preparation: Uli has put the manual on his site as a PDF.

will not further destroy this thread, but you fed my hunger for doing this die-cast-baby. Time and Money will tell.
As far as you know, I am not showing any building processes, because my skills are too poor to post them.

Cheers

@3.Star, Go for it! :) You will have a lot of fun! The kit is pretty easy, and you can build it without use glue! So when you decide to do the upgrade, you can remove all the parts without problems. You should post your building processes, so the people that have more experience can suggest you how to improve yourself (if need). Remember also that nobody born "model builder"... :D

Hello Brizio,
for my own part, I decided never to post one of my builds. Can't stand any critics. I am trying to do my jobs as well as I can do and did customers choice jobs as well. Last one was a '65 Corvette matching the real car.
Had even the original Nassau-blue mixed up with smaller metallic-flakes to match the prototype.

Cheers

@ Ton, that is a serious transkit Autograph Models does for the Ferrari. I can see that I need to stay away from these forums, my credit card is twitching bady.
@ 3. Star, no one will be critizised, at least I haven't seen that happen here, so please do post your Ferrari build when you get started. I might even follow up with one for myself.
