OK, I'll play along.  My finishes aren't in the same class as most of these... trying to get better.  This one is my favorite.... as much for the color as for the final finish.

Here are four of my builds where I think I did a pretty good job with the paint.

'62 Impala S/S. White is not the easiest color to get right and assembling those big decals was tricky. Anyway it turned out pretty good.

'69 Charger Daytona Cannonball Run racer. The paint itself didn't turn out that good, it had some orange peel on it and actually I had the same problem with clearcoat. But with lots of polishing I was able to turn that paint job into a pretty good one.

'61 Oldsmobile F85 STW Mild Custom. This was the first one I painted with Tamiya Sprays and I was really happy with the result. Only minor polishing was required.

'50 Oldsmobile Club Coupe Mild Custom. I had lots of problems with that red, but after a few repaints it turned out pretty good. Of course a clear coat and some polishing had to be done.

Built this for my middle son. Revell's Bullitt Mustang with AM 1/48 scale decals. All the color is Testor's square bottle enamel over a Tamiya Silver Leaf base. 

Before touch ups and clear.
