Although I've heard about this for a long time, it was not until recently I got interested in doing this. Steve and Peter both inspired me to try it. This is the Monogram simple but good looking Ferrari 308 GTB. No, Magnum's car was a GTS. I was afraid about this emblem because it is not available in photoetch (as far as I know).
I foiled it, trimmed it as close as possible and applied primer. Then polished the primer away. It needs at least one more coat of primer but you get the idea.

By the way, this car will be California Azzurro Metallic (light blue)

That works! California Azzurro is my favorite non-red Ferrari color. Looking forward to seeing it on your 308. :)
