      This is my first post on this forum. I had planned to post my Pocher Lamborghini Aventador coupe build as I progressed with it but I guess I got too wrapped up in the build and never posted anything. Upon completing it I put together a compilation of photos I had taken from start to finish and put them all together on the first page.
      For the roadster I am posting pictures as I make progress! Enjoy!

    Good catch! It is going to be painful to change the interior over to RH drive now ha ha. Pretty obvious now that you noticed my mistake!
    Thanks,

    What a fantastic build and well photographed as well
    Love the extra detail heat wrap and paintwork in the exhaust areas,but then I see your seats and the stitching detail and color and am drooling all over my Ipad
    I started as a classic Pocher snob, but you have won me over. I have been researching them and getting more interested.
    Hmmm, Hornby has the kits for $799 USD + shipping.....good deal or no???

    You should be able to find them cheaper than that. Ebay may get you the cheapest price if you are patient, but of course I'd recommend buying from a reputable dealer that can support you after the purchase There are enough of them still around that you may want to ask a dealer if the price is flexible....

    Thanks for the compliments! I had such a great time building the coupe that I have just started a roadster. In my opinion the Hornby kits are very good and there are some deals out there. Scaleautoworks.com has many in stock and I just purchased my new roadster from there. I can't speak for them now but in my case their pricing was better than what was listed on their website so I would give them a chance. Also the owner is a model builder so he is very knowledgable.
    As I said the kits are very good but this time with my roadster build I am going to strip the body, fit everything tear it down and then repainted it. Painting the body is the area where the kits can be improved the most in my opinion. In part because many of the plastic parts are still on the sprues with the factory paint and some of the scars are visible on the finished model.

    Great idea to fit all pieces together and check for any corrections. I'll be doing the same on the same roadster after a finish my white Aventador. What color are you planning on painting it?

    I am glad I test fit everything because there were a few minor issues. The other good thing with doing a repaint is that I was able to sand Aventador complete build with many pics fit things together and eliminate the paint buildup on the edges of the plastic parts. The factory paint is applied quite heavy and it shows when the model is assembled. As far as the color goes I have selected Rosso Mars and I am building my kit exactly like this real Aventador I found on Ebay! I had the color mixed in acrylic Aventador complete build with many pics enamel Aventador complete build with many pics at a local automotive store from the PPG paint code.
    Good news! I have tested white Krylon primer Aventador complete build with many pics from a spray can on an extra plastic part that I partially sanded through the paint down to the plastic and left the other half untouched. The primer Aventador complete build with many pics covers perfectly over the various surfaces and it is sandable. The Acrylic Aventador complete build with many pics enamel Aventador complete build with many pics covers the primer Aventador complete build with many pics with no issues too so now I am getting ready to prime the whole model!
