Bargain of the year.
I won't say how much as it would bug some of you.
Suffice to say - a bargain for a complete, un-started kit...

I'll start the build early next year.

I think I`ve seen this on an auction site recently. Blink Confused LOL

Now the question is, have you seen this bit of silver plated bling:

Looks nice.

Yes - it was on a certain Auction.
The guy then was accepting offers.
I made one I didn't expect to be accepted. - It was!

The silver Spirit...?
Naaah - I'll pass on that one.Laugh

Nice one .Cant wait to see the Roy treatment on this. Marvin Heit at modelmotocars makes a ton of upgrades for this, but you wont need them with your skills

Thanks all you chaps.
Sorry if my first post seemed overly excitable, but I genuinely did NOT expect my (meagre) offer to be accepted.

The kit arrived about 2 hours ago and at first glance all seems ok but of course, I will completely go through it and check, possibly re-bag the parts, all labelled.
That's only because it seems that most of the metal parts have all been put into 2-3 poly bags.
They should be in around 30 separate numbered packs for ease of finding.

That's not really a problem as I had the same thing to deal with when I built my Pocher Rolls Phantom about 6 years ago...

Nice. I got a K72 rotting in the basement for some years now. Be sure to get Paul Koos building instructions from ebay. The K72 is full of errors and caveats.

Thanks GH.
I've got the Rolls CD already - it's the same one that goes with the orange Phantom I built. It has an extra section for the K72.

Regarding built-in blunders - tell me about it.
I've built most of the old Pocher's over the years and none of them can really be built 'OOB' unless you're happy with glaringly bad fitting parts and umpteen errors.

One of the worst must be the Alfa Spider.
The engine has to be moved back almost a full centimetre to get the radiator in, and for the body to line up...
