2k ' off the gun ' does dry smoother than 1k which usually dries with a characteristic egg shell finish that is polished to get the same result. A real issue I found with 2k is it dries so hard it can be a mission to sand out and polish any imperfections that inevitably appear when I paint. Whilst I do have 2k here I find that having grown up with 1k its ease of use, less toxic and being considerably cheaper makes it my choice. I can't see any difference in the shine between my 2k and polished 1k paint jobs therefore the only benefit I can see from 2k is it could save some elbow grease if you laid it down perfectly. " Why bother with 2k " ..... I don't bother with it anymore as it has more negatives than benefits for me.
I've always used a disposable glove on the hand I hold the part with. Make sure to dispose of the glove at the end of the session though and start with a new one. I once reused a glove I'd had on the day before and started to get crud in the paint which turned out to be bits of paint flaking off the old glove
I only ever placed one order with Clearly Scale not long after they had opened but I never did receive that order. He had emailed me a photo of the post office receipt at the time he said he had shipped it so the order looks like it went missing in transit. These days I've been placing my Clearly Scale orders with Randy at Model Builders Warehouse who ships immediately and has provided me with an excellent service
Its certainly got presence. Its a movie car that was actually made in to a kit by Wave http://www.carbuzz.com/news/2015/6/22/You-Can-Now-Own-The-Insane-Car-From-The-League-Of-Extraordinary-Gentlemen-7727644/
My one arrived the other week from HLJ. Its in the same pattern as their 911GT3R and I can't see any reason it wont build in to a decent replica. I've never viewed the real car so I couldn't comment on its accuracy. The instructions and contents are online at Hobby Search http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10462379
