What I have read about the tyres of the Lambo is that they are hard plastic. I spoke Marvin Meit of MMC Model Motorcars; high quality after maket accessories for Pocher kits, Books, Tools and CDs (http://www.modelmotorcars.com)tonight and I asked if he had plans to make a set of his wonderful tyres for this Pocher. His answer was : Yes...when they are needed

I am interested....but I've heard that they are rubber.....that they need to be heated to soften them up so they can be mounted on the rims.

My concern is that they appear a bit tall in side profile?...compared to the 1:1.

If he could do different rims with tires...that would be cool.

Ton

If you need a hairdryer to soften them than most of the time it is plain plastic. Rubber and silicon are easy to mount. Sometimes you even need an inner tyre because they are to soft :-)

Hi Ton...I change my answer to Yes Definitely...I think the Aventador is an excellent kit...but anything that will enhance it further...I am definitely interested in....I hope these upcoming transkits can be done at a reasonable price...this kit has a lot a "room" for inhancements..and at least 3 others are planning upgrades....Perhaps we can voice the areas we would like to see improved?Do we want one big Super Detail transkit ...that covers everything you could possible want?Do we want the option to buy just a basic transkit or individual sets for the modest builder? Can they make it available to the masses...not a limited run! I assume the Aventador is a high production run.Can they use cost effective methods/ materials to keep costs down...eg 3D printing and cast resin..CnC machining as oppose to done manually.Repetition....please don't everybody do the same things...some AM upgrade do same stuff...Sometimes we get same stuff made by different producers...or it the exact same kit part but recasted in a different material...like white metal....Finally cost...if the price is up there....can there be a payment plan...people have had to wait for months while a transkit is being produce...how about a deposit...then monthly payments? making it fair to both parties.

Hi Superfly,

I have seen a lot of transkits the last 10 years. And most of them started as a one off for their own model. I think Uli started his transkit 10 years after the first release of the Pocher so I think we must not expect to much in the near future. Wenn the Revell 1:12 Shelby was released many plan for transkits were spoken off on forums.....I think only one remained.

I think if there are enough potential customers than the products will come.

Finally cost...if the price is up there....can there be a payment plan...people have had to wait for months while a transkit is being produce...how about a deposit...then monthly payments? making it fair to both parties.

Since the transkits usually come from one-man operations expecting them to be able to track monthly payments, deal with the people who make late payments, miss payments, and then change their minds half way through and want a refund of what they've paid in is just too much of a burden on the maker.
It's a bit like the doctor I see who is the doctor, receptionist, office manager, bookkeeper and cleaning staff all in one. I've been trying to get a statement from him for 6 months.

That's why I'm hoping Hobby Design will come in and do a transkit...They have already done a DMC transkit for AutoArt's 1/18 Aventador.

Scale Auto Works had a monthly plan for the kit...which made it easier on my wallet...Its was set-up through PayPay so automatic payments come out of buyer's account...easy on both parties....he is offering a payment plan still $200/month.

Hi Ton,

I agree to you. Without the necessary demand and the willingness to pay, there won't be maker to design a transkit. From my kownledge Uli is planning to create a transkit for the Avantator and Tomasso. I saw the work of Uli's F40 and I am really exicted about his Jaguar MK motor. Therefore I put the Aventator in the cellar. Unfortunately I haven't seen any detailled work from Tomasso. I only saw his announcement, that he wants to develop a kit.
After seeing pictures from the real LAmbo 2013 with the carbon addons - I think there are so many things which can be improved.
So I can wait.

Ton
12-30-13, 12:00 PM
So I can wait.

I have one waiting for me to collect, but I will also wait to see if any after market kits will come up and what the quality is. IMO a good transkit is the result of studying the original and adding small details to the right place.

HighEnder
12-30-13, 01:54 PM
Hi Ton,
fully agree with you. Some minutes ago I put my orange Aventator in the basement. Like a good vine to develop.
Maybe I will only show the modell like these pictures.
249952499324994
However it is essential to have a real good basis like tyres, good looking rims, an excellent motor finish and realistic brake discs with nice calipers.
But - as far as I can see - it will take a while to realize that project. Let's see what the transkit market will offer.
If this idea won't come true, I will build the modell with the new 2013 outside carbon look.

Again it is necessary to have nice tyres and good looking rims.

Trusting to the known quality of MMC, this will be really an upgrade. Kit provided tires aren't that ugly, but there is still some space for improvement. Now, that we are living in 2014 I am aware, that things are moving faster and faster for an old fart like me. Did not expect any transkit or upgrade parts for the Aventador until August this year. So I have to save a lot of coins to get all of those things.

Amalgam did a nice job on their resin tyres, see how the profile tapers in from the alloy. Anyone have one we can take a mould from!!! Come on it's only a four grand model!

However, when I look at the tyres on the real car from Pebble Beach I think Pocher actually got the profile right, it just doesn't look right on a model!

Weighted look is often to be found on airplane models. They give the impression that as a result of the weight of the model, the sidewalls of the tires are pushed to the outside and the tires are flattened.

See image.

superfly
01-02-14, 08:59 AM
Yes Tourpretendent...that is exactly what I meant ..For model to appear more realistic...it has to appear to be affected by gravity..the wheels should look like they are baring weight of the plane or car or motorcycle....

Some model kits miss this....so aftermarket companies provided resin replacements to correct this....(mostly for airplane models)

Also some rubber tires...attract a lot of dust which is difficult to clean and have a seam line which has to be removed...so some modellers perfer resin wheels.

Regarding the Aventador's wheels...I can't quite place whats wrong...maybe its the shiny plasticy look? maybe its the size or profile height?...or it doesn't look weighted?

On smaller models these little aspects can be overlooked...but a large scale like this...everything is amplified.


On a side note...I was wondering if getting a sugical suture needle and thread would work for putting realistic stitching on the seats? I have no clue if this is possible or where to get it from...just simply a thought.

Hello all,

In my opinion, for realism, ultra low shoulder/profile racing/sportscar tires would not show any compression on the sides, have a look at real carshttp://static.autojunk.nl/pictures/2013/0526/181921/image_03.jpg.
The same goes for motorcycles, I would most definitely not get on a fast bike showing any sign of compression or a weighted look (unless I wanted it to be my last ride!)
The only time this would occur is when the tires are seriously underinflated. Shoulders on these modern low profile tires are as stiff as can be to improve road contact and handling. Airplane tires are a completely different breed where the tires have a high shoulder to enable compression for the shock of landing..

The Aventador has "255/35/R19 for front wheels and tires, with massive 335/30R20 wheels and tires for the rear"
I honestly feel that using a weighted tire look would be completely wrong for this car. That being said, the appearance of the tire material, shine, structure are issues that will be of importance.

I agree with you Peter, My post was meant as an explanation of the term weighed look. Not for nothing there are no weighed look tires for model cars to my knowledge.
Although for older or vintage cars it wouldnít be a bad idea, as these cars stood on higher side wall tires.
Ronald

petersm
01-02-14, 10:33 AM
Hello Ronald,

Thank you!
Older cars would also not have radial tires and that would be a cause to show a more weighted look. I do not know of the tire pressures for the older or vintage cars (pocher model types) but one of the main advantages of using radials is a stiffer carcass of the tire to improve road handling. However I assume that for an older or vintage race car they would also increase tire pressure.

Marc

Hello Superfly,

"Bad" picture, with all the shadows it does not really show well. Off course there will always be some degree of compression but on a real high performance sportscar/racecar with ultra low profile tires it would be so minimal that it would not show on the model. Scaling is an important factor here.

The same issue goes for many of the carbon fibre decals, have a good look at the dashboard up close, then from a scale distance. You should notice that the fibre pattern becomes almost unnoticeable. IMHO having a weighted look on a 1/8 scale Aventador would resemble a flat or underinflated tire.

A Harley Davidson chopper is not a race bike by the way, I do understand your example but then have a look at a Suzuki Hayabusa or a Yamaha R1 to stay in the same league. Those type race bikes will not show the weighted look. It all boils down to personal preference but if you look at my linked picture for the Aventador you will not really notice any compression (picture of a real car on a real street)

superfly
01-02-14, 11:01 AM
Excellent point...your correct regarding scale carbon fiber decal...however....as distance changes as you approach closer to a model...things that are not precievable should start to be...its a compromise when creating anything in scale....If you don't included it...it might be preceived as omitted...if you do included it..........it might be out of scale....
Paint color is also affected be distance and atmosphere.....so we should compensate for that also...

In the end...it just has to fool the some of the people most of the time...even if its physically incorrect in the real world.

superfly
01-02-14, 11:13 AM
As far the the Aventador tires...Model Motorcars will be producing a replacement...I look forward to seeing what they come up with
Hopefully its an improvement...I welcome any suggestions or comments...this all helps me build better models.

petersm
01-02-14, 11:17 AM
Hello Superfly,

I wholeheartedly agree, I think that omitting a part or finish would not be the way to go, I tried to indicate that sometimes the subtle approach will work well. Regarding the carbon fibre, I am planning to use a 1/24 or 1/12 scale decal so the effect is still there but less noticeable. For the tires I will go for the unweighted look on the Aventador. For my models having bias ply or non-radial tires I will prefer a lightly weighted look. (e.g. the Modelmotorcars replacement tires for the classic Pocher models)

Best Regards,
Marc

Hi Marc,

Thank you so much...Let me know which scale carbon fiber you go with...and which tone(eg. petwer) and weave pattern... I might go the same route as you...I've got some 1/24 scale from Scale Motor Sports...I think they have 1/12 scale (for Tamiya Enzo)...And i think HiroBoy carries some too.

Pocher has that part of the engine cover already in carbon fiber...I'm wondering if I should match that scale or re-do that part???

01-02-14, 12:00 PM
Hello Renato,

I also have carbon decals from the same suppliers. I did get my Aventador in orange, however it will be quite a while before I get the chance to start building. Initially I plan to wait and see what aftermarket parts will become available and which ones I want to get. Then as I get to it, I will try to match the correct parts and finish. I usually make digital pictures of the parts and compare them to pictures of the real thing.
My main aim is to keep everything modest and subdued so it will appear as realistic as possible. I do not claim to be a good builder so I will closely watch other builders trying to learn from them.

Best regards,
Marc

Hi Renato, I use the 1/12 scale carbon fiber decal from Scale Motor Sports. It has the same scale pattern as the engine cover, so I think Pocher used the same 1/12 material.

Beginning several years ago, we started to produce replacement Tires for all the Pocher marquees.
So, naturally, we have begun the process for producing replacement Tires for the new Lamborghini Aventador. They should be available for sale next month...at a comparable price to our other black Tires.

Four tires + postage + taxes = about 155 euros ($ 211) here in Finland.We understand, but that is what we must charge to pay for prototypes, molds, and a fair profit. I think sanding or roughing the surface of the kit tires very lightly will improve the looks as well.

Hi Brady,

You can start a poll under "additional options" when you start a new thread

Hi Brady,

You can start a poll under "additional options" when you start a new threadI ticked that box, but the options for the poll never came up.

Tires are arriving every week now. We have shipped out approx 35 sets so far, mostly to the US and Canada, have about 10 more US sets to deliver and then will start shipping overseas.

Received mine two weeks ago. And very satisfied. I hope you will do the same for the roadster model when it will be out....

I'm not sure where these 'hard plastic' kit tyres are coming from......
I've looked at the tyres in my kit and they're perfectly ok.
Not completely soft rubber, but no way are they hard plastic.
I don't even think they will need warming to put them on the rims.................?????????

Good to have some news.Ordered a set of tires(tyres for UK) two months ago. There was no reply by Marvin, after I was asking about my order. Kind of strange, because there is almost a message coming up shortly.

Cheers
Michael

@ Brady, can you tell me how much will the postage be when sending set of these tires to Finland.

Thank you, Jouko.

Jouko, sorry for the delayed reply, I haven't been getting thread notifications. Overseas shipping for the tires is not expensive, it is a small, light package. AirMail shipping to Finland (or anywhere overseas including Hong Kong, Australia, etc)) is just $15.

There will be Aventador Roadster tires soon after the kit is out in November.
