If you would have to rate this transkit, how much score would you give?

Dashboard seems like a toy (like in the GT3 transkit) . Other parts looks good

No idea, what a toy dashboard looks like, but it is up to you to make it look like the real thing.

Btw, most transkits have just a remark how to modify the kit-dashboard, here you get one in "racing-shape".

If you want to rate this kit in a score, do it. But what are the points you use to fix kits in a score? Materials? Number of parts? a new body? price? Correct Scale?

Re: Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT - Scale Production transkit - Kit Review

Having another look at all those parts it really is quite impressive the range of different materials involved. Not only decals, resin, PE and machined aliminium, but also vacformed and even injected plastic!

Overall score. For sure P/E is very nice also resin parts (except the dashboard )
Decal does not interest me while I would like to build the test version with full pure carbonfiber.

Overall score...

I think it is up to each modeller, to make his own score on kits. If a modeller thinks a kit is a “must have”, he buys it, no matter, what other modeller say (how to make an objective score for a transkit with a -in your opinion- toy like dashboard and decals for 3 different cars, but they donīt interest you ????? )

Re: Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT - Scale Production transkit - Kit Review

Yeah to me hte decals are the most important part, most of the rest could be scratchbuilt (with obvuious exceptions of things like the wheels which would be beyond me). But I can understand those who want to build the CF prorotype won't need them.
