Nice collection :clap: you must have big shelves :mrgreen:

I really like the 1887 Benz Runabout (if that's what it was called :think: ). Shame there isn't a 1/8 scale kit of that model :(
Cheers

very lovely family of 8th scale cars john...
need to add a bit to this,
pocher made a full pewter model kit of the itala 1907 london-peking racer under the brand metropolitan-pocher,
more of a cottage industry model, with very fragile cast pewter chassis/body etc - later on they did the diecast/plastic kits as we know them...
building:DB5~E-Type~Testarossa~Aston Vantage V12~Millennium Falcon
