    I just got the red Maisto 2014 vette. The paint is a real problem. Looks like they sprayed a clear red over the bare metal to get a candy-apple effect. Looks fine in the flat areas. Problem is when you spray it over bare metal and not a gold or silver base coat, you end up with runs and pooling in recessed areas! Otherwise, a decent model for the price. A regular metallic paint would have been a better and safer choice. Hopefully they'll work it out in future versions
