View Full Version : Pocher lamborghini Aventador Build by PNG77

03-03-14, 06:09 AM
Hi Everybody,

Been building models on and off since I was small, but recently (last few years) have got into the larger scale kits. my builds include the Trumpeter GT40 and the Ferrari 643 in 1:12.

Have always been interested, and followed the Pocher line of kits but never thought about building one till the Aventador.

I hope to add photos as I go along, any suggestions or ideas would be a big help.

This is looking great.
I have this kit stashed away but can you tell me if you've added any extra wiring/plumbing etc, or is everything in your pics part of the kit?


03-03-14, 07:03 AM
Yes added extra wiring etc, the plugs on the block are part of the kit as well as a few rubber hoses but the rest is Scratch built

Very nice built Paul!

Some more Pics taking me up to where I am now, Just starting the interior now.

Question - What paint (satin/Matte) are you guys generally using for the Dash boards of modern cars?



03-03-14, 08:38 AM
Revell Satin

Hello Paul, the Engine is looking very fine with that extra carbon fibre and the wires.

Hi Paul, looking great. You've certainly used some nice touches to bling it up!
Is that Bare metal foil you used around the shock body to give it such a polished look?
I like that you used gloss black on the top engine brace, I might do that.
Are you going to do the rubber drive shaft boots in Matt black though? The drive shats are gloss black on the real car also.
I used Halfords Matt black over their grey primer for my dash and did it from a distance to give it a grainy finish. I did notice they do a camouflage ultra Matt black also when I was in there today.

Thanks for the comments.

Yes Metal foil on the shocks, thought it gave a better finish. As for the Gloss Back on the engine brace, I did some research and many of the photos I found had a gloss black finish to the sub frame, so I just continued this look. (As pic below)26201

Those pics are of the show car that Lamborghini built for display. The road cars are generally a bit duller in their finish.
Looks better with a bit of gloss imo!

Thanks for the info, I think it looks better gloss, and also the paint on the supplied frame is quite fragile so wanted to add some protection to it.

Fantastic work on your engine build!!!

Hi guys, been working on the interior and the seats, found some nice adhesive felt used for jewellery boxes for the carpet, and some colour match paint from hiroboy's Zero paint range.26220262212622226223

OH WOW! PNG77...Well done!...very neat and clean workmanship....carpet looks great. Did you paint the stitches white before the orange? Its seems to pop out more? Also is the zero paint safe to use on the PVC seats?

03-06-14, 09:07 AM
Thanks Superfly, coming from you that high praise indeed.

No I didn't paint the stitching white first but after trying a wash into the indents first and not being happy I just held my breath and painted each stitch with full strength paint. I did a test on the back on the seat with the paint and it didn't react.

Going to move onto the stitching on the dash now, thinking I might punch the sticking to match the seats with a small flat head screw driver and do the same there.

Looking forward to seeing the dash...I think it will look really nice.

03-09-14, 07:19 PM
Hi guys,

just some idea's for the dash, got some leather look adhesive sheets from Steve at 'Hiroboy' think it looks really good, but I not sure how to show the detail of the panel lines. And the stuff is quite expensive so if I add it to the dash where do I stop on the interior

Great work,PNG771nworthy1

Just a quick photo update. Decided to re-do the Interior using a best paint and clear coat to give a vinyl / leather look. Photos don't do it justice.

Looks amazing! Best orange interior I've seen yet

Stunning interior!..I really like it! What did you use for the heat shielding on the firewall?

04-01-14, 01:55 PM
Hi Superfly, thanks for the comments, took 3 reps rays to get the right look I wanted in the interior.

the heat shield is a adhesive sheet I get from Hiroboy.com

Hi Pau,l Wow your superb build has made my decision as to my next project. Am currently finishing the Pocher K75 Rolls Royce cabriolet. I was torn between the aventador or the tamiya 1/12 detailed Enzo. Think I will plump for the Aventador BUT will wait for the roadster in Oct. Cheers john

Please help iv been looking at your model and i must say you are second to none.i have been trying to copy what you have done, and ordered a lot of pipes ect which are wrong. I know it is a big ask but if you find the time could you please supply me a list of all the things you have used. Ie paint for the orange interior clear pipes etc around the engine bay. And transfers.etc. money is no object but i need to build my kit like yours. Cant wait to see your next post. Looks amazing.my email is c.mears338@talktalk.net i understand if you cant help. But a 39 year old who has never been good with paint etc but been building models since i was 6 you can imagine what it will look like.

You might also consider using the silver inside of cigarette packs.

Ahhhhh...this is one of those "I knew I'd find a use for that someday" examples.

Couple of months ago I was opening a tub of butter (a New Zealand product called Mainland Buttersoft) and it was sealed with a "heavy duty" foil, which just happened to be gold on one side and silver on the other and about 115mm by 85mm useable area.
Not flimsy but not too thick either. Doesn't tear easy and can be trimmed easily.
I smoothed it out with just a finger rub and it looks great...to me anyway.

I had forgotten about it until I started looking for such a product (heat shielding) on the net.
Suddenly the brain kicked in and I went searching through the box of useless bits and pieces(until you need them), and found 2 of these pieces.
If I remember correctly, gold is a very good heat reflector.
et voila!!!!!!


Maybe you have something like that in your local supermarket.

gorgeous build, Paul (Paul from Partworks by any chance?)
