Pocher 1:4 Scale Model of the Ducati 1299 Panigale S

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Italian scale model maker Pocher is known for its exquisite work, and the company specializes in making high quality 1:8 models of some of the finest cars ever to grace the open road.

Looking for a new challenge, Pocher has expanded its line to include motorcycles, the first of which is the Ducati 1299 Panigale S that you see above.

At nearly a foot long, and fitted with real rubber, metal, and plastic pieces, this isn’t just some tiny hobbyist kit, but instead a true collectible that has been engineered to be as close the Panigale S as you can be, at 1:4 scale.

The detail in the photos below looks intense, but Pocher swears that you don’t have to be a master model-maker to assemble the 600 or so parts in the kit. Though, we still doubt that it is a light affair making the 11 lbs finished product.

We don’t do holiday gift guides here at Asphalt & Rubber, but we’re pretty sure that if there’s a Ducatisti in your life, this would be the ultimate gift.

Unfortunately, last we heard from Pocher is that the Ducati 1299 Panigale S kit was out of stock. Hopefully more will be available soon, in time for the holidays. In the meantime, drool over these photos below.
