Hello again,

Simple doesn't mean bad. I'm impressed on how simple this Monogram Ferrari 308 GTB kit is, yet it looks very good. It probably has less than 40 parts. This is a kit I would have put together in 15 minutes in the past :D Now, it takes me that time to find the right tool for doing something..... :lol:
Anyways, since it is a curbside, the engine cover doesn't even has molded lines. So I scribed them.

After:

A little sanding and some more light scribing to make it deeper and it will be ready for final primer and color.

Thanks,

Rest? I'm already suffering withdrawal because I'll be out of the country next week. And last time I took putty (Milliput) on a trip, it looked like plastic explosives to an airport official :cry:

Thanks,

Good deal Ismael. I almost picked up a Testors 308 recently. Looking back I don't know why I didn't. Guess I had the gee "I have way too many models and I don't need another" syndrome...now I wish I'd have gotten it.

Oh...but I did buy a little Aurora 1/32 scale MGB while I was there (for 6 bucks) LOL Full engine detail and all !
