what is a "transkit"?
A transkit (short for "transformation
kit") is a separate set of parts to add extra details to an existing kit.
They are almost always produced by small independent companies, not
by the maker of the original kit, and usually add an exponentially greater
level of detail than the original kit provides. Unless specifically stated
otherwise, you still need the base kit to build a complete model.
"Well I finally finished the
F40 engine. What a project. These models really do have every
hose and wire as the real thing. The photo etched parts come with
the Ferrari logos, so I glued it to the stand along with the etched tools.
The alternator was hollow, so I took apart a miniature motor and took the
shaft with the coils and put it inside the alternator to make it look real.
There is one step towards the end of the assembly that just tells you to
look at the assembly manual from the real car to wire up the engine.
Needless to say that step takes a while. Anyway just that I'd let
you know that I thought the kit is well made and all of the photos and
drawings are very complete, to allow for an extremely accurate model.
The hardest part is finding matching screws in that big assortment!" B.
"After almost three trips
to divorce court...two dead goldfish...many nights sleeping on the couch...and
I don't care what my wife says, the cat will come home...I finally finished
the F40 engine...."
