In CYCLES select the mesh you want to be transparent. Go to the Object header and check the Transparency box. enter image description here

Go to the Material header, add a new material and decrease the Alpha value in the Settings panel as pictured below. enter image description here

You may also change the color of transparency. enter image description here

In BLENDER INTERNAL do the same things in Object header as shown above. Next go to the Material header, check the Transparency box and decrease the Alpha value in Transparency panel. enter image description here

If your model is one solid mesh (does not consist of many loose meshes) you may add a transparent material to any part of it (any faces) you like. Create the transparent material (using methods I've shown above) and assign it to the desired faces. enter image description here

Here's the result. enter image description here


With very little information provided, I think you simply need to drop the Alpha on the black Material. If you want complete transparency, and those faces aren't essential, you could just delete them.
