Is there anyone who have some clouse up pictures of the throttle arangement and how they are connectet together, it looks like there is a solid bar betwin the 2 intake tubes where the axel is running and the linkage operated in the center of the 4 intake tubes.

Hi Egon,

I have the drawings too....and a complete (german) DVD of a restauration of a F40 which was smashed. I don't need it anymore so I can sell it to you.

The CD shows a lot of detail of the car inner and from the engine too. But I don't know if it shows the specific parts

Body details: Open the gills, what a job, used a whole roll of cutting discs (100) that was flying around the room when they break.

Egon. I do remember! One most terrible moments in this building job. The metal is almost as hard as diamond!

Paint stripping: pretty hard job, 4 time with paintstripper and had to go manuel with the scalpel on the last bits, front polished just for fun.

Update on details: I have been working a bit on the doors, hinges and locks, the real doorlock is very complicated to copy so I did my own simple that works fine, hinges on enginehatch reduced to a more realistic look, all parts handmade.

Egon

Yes still on the bench but not working at the moment, havn't got the spirit to do anything.
Did work on the Windows and got stuck.

WOW Egon!!!!

That's a shame. Would you say you went too far with the detail? Reason I ask is I have a Pocher F40 and can't decide if I should go the Autograph route with it or use a mix of Sacaledetails/Tremonia parts and therefore keep it simpler.
I'd hate to spend that kind of money and then not finish it!
Whats your experience?

Egon
02-25-14, 07:41 PM
Well I have no experience with the transkits, so I can't guide you there, Ton can, I do all my parts by hand and from lots of pictures, the rest I guess, like the doorlock, I to think the transkits are to pricey, I downloaded the pictures from Autograph to see how the tanks shape are, it's my intention to do a loot of details more than Autographs kit, but this F40 pushed back my Rolls K72 and my Merc. K82 that to was to be detailed, you can see my galley of RR details.
But I need the spirit to push on and who knows when it comes.

I can give you guys a sneak preveiw of my intention on the rolls, if successful ? time will tell

Hi Guiddy,

If you are used to the the minimal instructions of the manual and you have the necessary modelling skills the transkit it is not that difficult. But it is a challenge for your perseverance gringrin because you it "takes" roughly 600 to 800 hours of your live 1gramps1 That is for most of the builders to much....and the model gets on the shelve

for some overall diagrams of the F40, real thing, you might take a look at either or both of the following sites for Ferrari parts:
