I have already admitted I do not like the Enzo and, less than ever, now the Fxx. Difficult, in my opinion to build something more ugly, but this car is pure technology and the E.Jan transkit sounded immediately like an interesting challenging project. Once studied the contents, I opted to replicate the Fxx lifted on air jacks, wheels off and doors opened. Obviously with the engine well visible.

The transkit

The newcomer Japanese firm E.Jan, hit the market a few months ago with this interesting and complex transkit intended for the Tamiya Enzo #24260, of which approximately 50% of the parts will be used.

The packaging and some other details strongly remind to Model Factory Hiro, the same technique has been applied for the photo-etched parts, and the package of the white metal parts.


The undertray, copied (and modified) from the Tamiya kit, is made of white metal and features a good quality with some distortion.


Body parts, made of resin are finely engineered and molded.

wheels have been just copied from Tamiya, with the addition of four ugly and not properly scaled slick tires

 Many turned parts, 3D Ferrari logos (MFH), metal parts and wires are provided.


Quality and fit of the metal parts is nothing special. A complete set of thin acetate glasses is included as well as some red ribbon for the belts.

Decals are very well done except the registering of the red rings for the wheels, white area are not very opaque. E.Jan instructions leaflet is very approximated, many explanation are omitted and it is mandatory a continuous cross-checking with the kit instructions.

The process

After having deeply studied all the instructions and looked at the parts, I started with the brakes discs. Made of etched steel, each unit features four pieces that I glued together with cyanoacrylate.

The transkit includes some beautiful turned hubs with working nuts, callipers made of white metal have been sanded down with #1000 grit and tested on the discs.


Callipers have been painted semi-gloss black, hub thread gold and the discs with a mix of Humbrol metalcotes.


Locking nuts painted clear red and added the prancing horse black roundels decals, wires from Detail Master.
