This model is very rare! The Pocher company had only the rights for the production of a Black one: Mercedes Benz 500K/AK cabriolet (Pocher K74). The Mercedes-Benz company obliged Pocher to stop the production immediately else a law sew will be started! Ofcourse Pocher stopped the K80 production !
The body is finished in a beautiful deep red color, the color is of splendid quality, painting is absolutely not necessary. You can paint the direction indicators on the side of the car, they are delivered in black! The white color on the tires is painted by airbrush.
You can make the interior of the car more exclusive by sewing a pattern on the leather ( see pictures). I use transparent glue (Pattex transparent) for putting the leather on the seats. This model is difficult to build but fantastic when it is finished!
The soft top is a real challenge..First you have to nit the three pieces of clothtogetherr, then attach thesoft top in front of the car, then go backwards. With each step you have to try if the top can be opened, if not try again. At last when the soft top is glued completely to the frame you can cut the material. Be careful not cut to many of the cloth!
I want to thank H. Bürgel for selling this model to me!
