Few weeks ago I presented the red VOLVO F12 (1/13 scale model). As I said, to design and build this big tractor truck I’ve used the huge 1/8 scale model released in 1987 by Pocher (historic Italian brand of static model making, failed few years ago and now bought by the english Hornby).
Now I do have the pleasure to show you the 1/13 LEGO model side by side with the 1/8 POCHER model.
I enjoyed photographing the two models together.
When people see my 1/13 LEGO model they are surprised by the sizes, but when they see the 1/8 Pocher model they can’t believe their eyes. It’s really huge!

If you speak Italian here you can read my personal tribute to the Pocher company and models.
