  1. Thanks! The wheels are the kit's original plastic wheels. I painted them with artist oils, then a mist coat of semi gloss over them.
  2. Thanks guys. I have alot to learn from all of you. I have posted some WIP years back for my 1/12 Mefistofele, Fiat 806 and Bentley Blower. But once all of those were wiped out thanks to Photobucket, I stopped posting. I will be getting some hex rods from MMC to mount most of the parts (I got this tip from Codger's RR build). Will I also need 2mm nuts or will the Pocher's nuts work? With the body now in place, I can see that the doors are fine, but this is before I have the leather on. It's the hood that will be the main concern and I doubt I can get the hood flush unles
  3. Hi guys, Here's my first completed Pocher kit. Built around 2.5 years back. Took me around 6 months. It was my first Pocher, so it was built without any upgrade parts from MMC. Wood veneer was used for the interior and some added bolts and bits. It was a blast building this kit and got me addicted to Pocher, big time! Also have to add that I had lots of help from Paul Koo's DVD. I was particularly pleased how the wheels turned out, painted with just artist oils, as I always had problem painting woodgrain.
  4. If there is any admin reading this, can you please delete this double post? The first time I posted, there was an error which said post was not successful. Then double postings appeared. Thanks.
  5. Hi guys, It has been a few years since I've posted on this forum. I'm currently building this Pocher kit, and through my emails with Larchiefeng, I figured it's best for me to do a build log here to get some feedback on the build. The engine has been completed, and the body and fenders have been tested mounted on. All of this was done with the help from Paul Koo's DVD. The body will be painted red, with cream interiors. Here are some photos of my progress so far. Sides of the engine are opened up to show the
  6. Absolutely loving it. I also especially like the base for it.
  7. This is one of my favorite builds of all time. Truly an inspirational build and thanks for all the fantastic tips and detailed pictures along the way. It has been a very rewarding journey and thanks for sharing. Regards, Jeremy
  8. Looks absolutely stunning and majestic!
  9. Sorry, should have been more clear. The thinner I used was Mr. Hobby Levelling Thinner which I think is less agressive compared to commercial lacquer thinner.
  10. Hi Ian, Molotow chrome is no where as fragile as Alclad, but it will be affected by handling as well. It takes quite a long time to dry. I place it near the window for sun bathing for a few days, turning it periodically. The Bentley badge was from the kit. I was lucky enough I manage to salvage it when first removed. I had a few layers of primer and then gloss black on the shell before Molotow chrome. Problem with Molotow chrome is that it needs to flood the part before the chrome gets its shine. This affected the detail on the badge. So I rubbed off the chrome only on
  11. Hi Codger. It was sprayed at 15PSI.
  12. Thanks for looking in guys. Hi Ron, I sprayed it at 15 PSI. Hi Andi, the finish is not that durable. I handled some parts after 48 hours and it does affect the shine a little. Even so, it's miles more durable compared to Alclad, and more importantly way easier to achieve the desired finish. It quite fool-proof. I only have Mr.Hobby Super Clear and Mr. Hobby Acrysion Clear. The Acrysion clear does dull the finish. I did not try Super Clear. The radiator casing will not be handled much, so I won't be coating it. Just hoping that the finish doesn't
  13. Hi guys. Copying my post from my WIP thread. A small update. Sprayed Molotow Liquid Chrome on the radiator shell. The liquid chrome was thinned with approximately half Mr. Hobby Levelling Thinner. While Alclad Chrome requires light misting coats onto a glossy surface, Molotow requires just a sanded smooth primed surface. I achieved the effect below my laying on a few layers in quick succession. First layer will not appear nice, with some uneven effect which gave me a scare. Then after 2 more coats, I got the effect I was after. SinceI diluted with 50% thinner, the coats were p

  15. I'm waiting for the refill to arrive and will use it on the radiator shell of my Bentley build. Will post up pics once it's done. Will also try spraying Mr. Hobby's Acrysion clear coat over it to see how it holds. Regards, Jeremy
