I built this earlier this year. Not exactly a car, but the concept is the same. (Well, it is an american 2 seater high performance dream machine anyways )
It was painted Testors Model Master flat military colors. I airbrushed Tamiya acrylic clear over it to a nice glossy finish. Polished it a bit, applied decals and then airbrushed dullcoat over it. I went very light on the dullcoat since this is supposed to be a demonstrator unit, but you can go a bit heavier if you want.
Hope this helps.
Disclaimer: I hate decals and they hate me. I avoid them like a pest. That's why I build mostly factory stock.

i love decals. its mostly a matter of learning to prep and apply them and what chemicals work with what decals.
