The later Pochers (F40, Testarossa and Porsche) are just a shadow of the Pocher "Classics." Waaaay less parts, much less detail. The aftermarket transkits for those models are pretty much a requirement if you want a detailed, accurate model. The transkits are expensive (they can cost as much as the kit itself), but they're worth it.

Well I have a bit of progress to share with ya, I was able to work on the motor and exhaust today. The exhaust took some soldering and I had a really good time putting this all together. I still have to paint the exhaust parts so I plan to do that tomorrow. I hope you enjoy.......
