    Very difficult in my opinion.

    I bought that trans kit and sold it off on Ebay.

    It is fairly well made for what it is. But the resin and white metal parts will require lots of work. Be aware that in 1:8 scale errors and misfits show up easily.


    A number of body modifications are required. Taking a cut off wheel to the Pocher metal body was beyond my skills.

    I am told the F40 kit is going to be reissued in the next few months. But that is just a strong rumor IMO.

    Prowler,
    fortunately, Stephane from scaleauto posts here from time to time. I'm sure he'll see the Pocher Transkit title and chime in shortly.
