    How on earth are you getting the details for this? I am putting together my own Mercedes and there's no way the Pocher kits had this level of detail. I have plenty of reference photos, but they don't even have all the detail you're showing. I'm in awe!

    I have contacted Modelmotorcar and they say they dont have the CD with how to convert the Pocher K82 540K to the real Special, but I have seen a dark blue one that was converted somewhere.
    Is there anyone how knows about this CD. ??

    News. Just found out that's a book from MMC with a CD, Pocher advanced technicqes.
    Very nice job on your F40, looks like your a pro builder, mayby in a
    competition with Rogers build.
    I think you need some movement in the upper and lower balljoint, they are not fixed like you have right now.

    Let me ask. I'm just starting off with brass so soldering is still new - let alone forming it into shapes. Looking at that amazing fuel tank, how did you form the metal so perfectly over the wood? I wouldn't expect the metal to look so 'untouched' if you hammered it. Do you have a bender for the hard creases? And the side pieces look like you must have your own die press to get that lip to follow the contour so perfectly.

    hi randy! no hammering, no bender and no die press, it is all hand made. first you have to glow the brass. the hard crease is made by a bench vise. all the rest of the brass was formed over the wood (manually). the lip (brass stripe) is modeled between finger and thumb. hope my english is understandable. regards markus
