    I am a new guy on the block and doing my first Pocher. I am ready to paint engine parts. do I glue and paint the crankshaft? do I use spray cans or airbrush Painting Pocher engine . Enamel Painting Pocher engine or lacquer Painting Pocher engine ? Is silver what most people use? Black valve covers for contrast? Opinions would be appreciated.

    Hi Jim and welcome, there are lot of ways to go, but first find some pictures of the real engine to see the colors, some do realistic with some dirt in the corners and a bit of oil leak or shining new engine, it's up to you what way you want it, spraycan is okay and not the crankshaft you can't see it.
    Browse around and get some ideas, detailed or stock.
    What Pocher model are you building

    Type Pocher Alfa into the search engine from this site and this is what you get...good to look around, do some research before you start painting

    Egon,

    Thanks for your input. I am building the Pocher K73 Alfa Romeo Spider. Luckily, I purchased the Paul Koo DVD to point out the flaws in the model. I am having a good time, but outside knowledge is certainly a welcome help.
