Hello Friends, I just completed this OOB, about a month's time of building using enamels and acrylics, including Alclad paints and the Kustom Kolor metallic red.  It's been almost 10 years since I've built a model car...glad to have returned to the hobby. Thanks.

Thanks fellas! I actually built this one for my wife because the nickname I have given her over the last few years is Mousey, hahaha. She enjoys cheese. So I found this kit at Pegasus Hobby in Montclair, CA and told her I'd build it for her. :) Now she has to display it on her work desk!

As far as the paint job, I researched quite a bit to make it as smooth as possible. During my Google searching, I was fortunate to find the great videos by Doctor Cranky on YouTube. I did a bunch of paint sampling on plastic spoons and finally dialed in the work flow I thought worked best:

3 coats of Plastikote Auto Primer
3 coats of silver
3 coats of Red metallic
5+ coats of Testors Glosscote clear, all airbrushed with the exception of the rattle can primer.

Then 3200 - - - > 12,000 grit, polished.

Voila.
