POCHER – HK114 – Lotus 72D – 1972 British GP – Emerson Fittipaldi


Product Info

This amazing Pocher kit features incredible detail in the monocoque chassis, the suspension and engine components, and even the elaborate cockpit – all of which include individual components for you to put together. The Lotus logo and Emerson Fittipaldi livery are faithfully replicated, printed on high-quality, die-cast pieces. With real rubber tyres and durable plastic details, all this Lotus 72D needs is someone to assemble the whole thing.

The finished model measures 523mm long and 235mm wide. This super-stylish 72D is recreated in 1:8 scale to make it the stand-out star of your Pocher collection.

The Lotus 72 is one of the most beautiful, innovative, and iconic Formula One racing cars of the 1970s. Colin Chapman’s revolutionary idea of moving the radiator from the front of the car to the sidepods allowed a sweeping change in the looks, handling and ability of Formula One cars. Firstly, in Gold Leaf colours and then in the stunning black and gold of JPS, the Lotus 72 swept all before it in the early 1970s, proving to be a classy contender.

Powered by a just as legendary engine – the Ford Cosworth DFV 3.0 V8 – the Lotus mated the power of this world-beating engine with handling that left the rest of the field behind. This chassis – identity number 7 (of 9) – was raced at the 1972 British Grand Prix by the soon-to-be World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi. Around the sweeping confines of the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, Emerson emerged victorious over the Tyrrell of Jackie Stewart by just four seconds as he charged towards that year’s crown.

A car of this calibre deserves a lot of respect. Our Pocher model kit puts it back on a pedestal where it belongs.

Pocher Model Kits

Pocher models are recognised as some of the most complex and detailed automobile kits ever made, carefully constructed from premium die-cast metal and ready painted.

A Brief Pocher History

Pocher released its first 1:8 scale model kit back in 1966 - the Fiat 130 HP F2. Since then, this exemplary brand has developed and marketed the world's most impressive car kits in 1:8 scale and most recently motorbikes in 1:4 scale. From Rolls Royce to Porsche, through Bugatti, Mercedes and Ferrari, these, with others, have been some of the iconic brands of super high-end cars Pocher has produced as stunning models during the nearly 50 years of its history. Arnaldo Pocher was born in 1911 in Trento, Italy. He trained as a goldsmith engraver and went to work in Turin. In the years following the Second World War he became interested in railway modelling and in 1951 he formed Pocher Micromeccanica S.n.c. alongside Corrado Muratore producing train signals, platforms and points using innovative production techniques. Under a change of name, The Corrado Muratore and Arnaldo Pocher Company, they produced finely detailed freight and passenger carriages in white metal and later locomotives and power cars. At the International Toy Fair of Milan in 1966, the Pocher stand astonished the world with its wonderfully detailed 1:8 scale model of the Fiat F2 130HP, the car which won the 1907 French Grand Prix driven by Felice Nazzaro. The model contained 144 high-resistance plastic parts, 173 in brass and 506 in steel, copper, leather, rubber and aluminium. The Company went on to produce ever more detailed models of motoring classics including the 1931-34 Alfa Romeo 2300 Ac Monza, the 1932 Rolls Royce Phanton II Drophead Sedanca Coupe, the 1932 Alfa Romeo Touring, the Mercedes-Benz 500K/AK containing 2,378 part and then the Rolls Royce Torpedo Phanton II Convertible with 2,905 parts. Pocher continued to produce highly prized and detailed model cars under Rivarossi from 1981 until the organisation became part of Hornby Hobbies and was relaunched in 2012.

What makes Pocher so Iconic?

Even the fuel cap can be opened Presenting fully detailed parts has been one of the most well-known Pocher features over the years. Our aim is to exactly reproduce every detail as shown in real life; even those that might not be seen once the model has been assembled. We always pay special attention to the engine, where every little part seen in the real one can be found
