A large part of what makes this model so realistic is the surface finishes. There's absolutely no orange peel, but the gloss looks like paint on a 1:1 car, and avoids the "dipped in syrup" look some models end up with.
The polished rims, I assume done with metalizer, are also very convincing.
I like this one enough to look at it over and over.
Thanks Bill. Yep no clear here. The rims are actually the kit finish and are a bit to shiny IMO. My next build I might strip them (gasp) and paint them a flatter finish.
