POCHER 1/8 Alfa Romeo Spider Touring Gran Sport MINT UNSTARTED spyder

Huge POCHER 1:8 Alfa Romeo model kit, Made in Italy. Open box but all parts are sealed in bags and never disturbed. All parts bags stapled to flaps are intact, with no splits or parts leaks. I am the original owner (and have personally built this same kit before) and know the kit to be unmolested, so have no reason to believe anything is missing. If you are looking at this auction you know how intricate these kits are, with thousand of parts (plastic, metal, rubber, leather), complete with working pistons, working brakes (though it's very tricky to make them work!), and individually hand-laced wire wheels. But the finished product is AWESOME! The box is near mint and quite sturdy.

You can see pics of my built Spider HERE . NOTE that this auction is for an unassembled kit. The completed pics shown are for reference only.

Here are some other items I will be listing in the next few days:

I do not have Detailed Seller Ratings anymore because it's been a year since I last sold items. Back then my Ratings were (out of perfect score of 5.0): Description Accuracy (4.9), Communication (5.0), Shipping Speed (4.8), Shipping Charges (4.9). !

This item is for sale in the US and CANADA ONLY. Canadian bidders please contact me for a shipping quote. Shipping to Canada will probably be in the $54 range. Unfortunately shipping rates just went up again earlier this year.

I am a modeler and know this kit to be complete and perfect, so PARTS POACHERS STAY AWAY. Returns are only accepted if item description turns out to be significantly inaccurate. Sealed kits once opened cannot be returned.

I've had some non-paying bidders lately - note that I report all non-paying bidders to eBay, and not only do you get a strike on your record for all to see, which looks awful, but also eBay now automatically blocks non-paying bidders from leaving feedback on the transaction. If you do not intend to pay or may have buyer's remorse BETTER NOT BID!

I'm sorry the high bid on this listing keeps going up and down! A bidder from Italy keeps bidding and I keep canceling his bids. I have contacted him twice telling him I will not ship to Italy. Hopefully it will not happen again.
