Yes, I agree, the chassis paint looks very real (Is Tamiya Light Gun metal TS-42).
I have to say that I dont mind painting the bodies or any other larger parts with spray paint, but I always wanted to be able to use the airbrush like all the guys you see on the YouTube tutorials (Have followed the Plamo Tsukurou channel for a long time and even though is in Chinese or Japanese, I truly enjoy looking the stuff they make: https://www.youtube.com/user/Jiscuit ).
Talking about spray paint... I think I just ruined the body as well.
Brand new can of Testors clear coat enamel and the thing just went wild half way down the job... It was the last one so I could not stop, the paint was not flowing uniformly and I had mora clear on my hands than in the body of the car. Looks Ok but not great, may have to polish a little and do an additional coat
Spent some time talking to a local hobby shop owner, I'm not sure if he was trying to sell something more, but he was very persistent on the idea of me trying a bigger scale, he seemed to believe a noob would do much better... What do you guys think?
