All Pocher Ducatis we had in stock are sold out now! Pocher can no longer deliver kits, allegedly the entire production is sold out. 

Pocher Lamborghini Huracan Verde Mantis now available: 
We got the first green Huracans! Earlier than expected - Vestergaard seems to be doing a better job than Hornby in punctual delivery of new releases. From now on the green Huracan is available!

Pocher Lamborghini Huracan: 
In contrary to the most of our competitors, we have sufficient stock of this kit. We are agle to deliver immediately! 

Pocher Lamborghini Huracan - Rosso Mars: 
The red Huracan is also in stock. But we do not have as many as from the yellow version.

For the world market only a total of 1500 Pocher Huracans were produced - 700 in red and 800 in yellow. Only 350 of them come to Germany: 150 red and 200 yellow Huracans. A new production is not provided by Pocher!

Kits from Model Factory Hiro, which are not listed in our webshop:
Besides the kits in scale 1/9 and 1/12, which almost all are stocked by Autograph, HIRO offers a number of additional kits. These are automotive kits in 1/43, 1/24, 1/20 and military kits (i. e. tanks) or ships. Naturally we can also get these kits for you in the short term, usually within 10 days, if they are available from the manufacturer. If you have any requirements, please don't hesitate to ask! Here is the official website of Model Factory Hiro:


Model Factory Hiro brings out at least one new 1/12 full-detail kit in several variants each month. In return, a number of kits from current production are no longer available. Please note that AUTOGRAPH can not stock all 1/12 HIRO kits in all variants. However, we will stock all Ferrari and Porsche as well as some other attractive models. All other kits will be order items with a reduced price.

We are weekly ordering in Japan, so if you want to buy a kit, that is currently not in stock, we (normally) should be able to help you within one week! Even with the kits in 1/20, 1/24 and 1/43, which we currently don't stock!

Most of our competitors don't stock older kits and are only ordering monthly, so you'll have to wait more than 4 weeks on your order with them.

General information about our pricing:
We always try to offer you attractive prices for our pricing. Sometimes, however, we find that a competitor offers the same item cheaper. If you notice this, please contact us! But please also compare availability and shipping costs. We guarantee the following: If the same item should be cheaper in the shop of one of our competitors, you will get a price from us for the same iterm that is at least one euro cheaper!
