It will be flawless if the sink mark on the bottom of the floor is filled.
Those are not actually sink marks, but holes for the attachment screws. To cover the screws, I made little caps from plastic sheet and applied matching cf decal to the rest of the floor. I had a he!! of a time getting the sidepod inlets assembled, then the body mated to the floor, and the screws are important to getting and keeping it together. So, no way to make it perfectly smooth, just had to cover and match the best I could.

Chris

Hi Chris,

I am talking about the curve line (in red circled area).
Complete 24.JPG
It looks like a sink mark from the rib where the body joins the flat floor. I may be wrong. Even if it is a sink mark, at least it is at the bottom of the car. I have this happened on the hood of a car. I only notice it after I painted and polished it. Ah! So I am sensitive to it. :lol:

Anyway, your Ferrari looks great! I know it is not easy to build it so beautiful.

Aaaahh, understand. Yes, this is a mark in the plastic, and same situation, I noticed it too late and didn't have energy to go back and fix it.
The sidepod inlet area was reeaalllyyy difficult to assemble. It's very complicated and super tight fit and required some surgery, so I was expending all my energy in that and ran out.

Hello All,
Thanks for the nice comments.
One last share, here are all the CF decal templates I made for this project. For many of them, templates are for one side, and just flip it for the other side. Some of them are marked so I could remember how they line up and align the pattern accordingly. All totaled, 600+ decal pieces.

Cheers,
Chris

I used the Studio 27 CF kit and even without having to do the masking it took forever to get all the decals done, that is an amazing amount of work to do. And you probably covered the entire car, which Studio 27's kit didn't manage.
