Thank you Spanjaard and Norbert!
@Spanjaard: (unfortunately) I had to go back to rattlecans, the famous MoTip and Dupli cans, the primer and color coats went well. But the clearcoat was horrible, I hate rattlecans, I had to learn again to work with them and the second attempt was better, but still I had to polish. I used Micromesh and Novus Polish.
But if you ask me; I'd rather go with the airbrush...

I'm not really a car guy, but that is awesome! Impressive paint job, you must have a very clean and well ventilated spray area to avoid dust and hair and junk!

That's beautifully turned out, aftermarket resin wheels look brilliant with the redlines, excellent all round!
I've got 6 of these in various states from 3 still boxed & bagged to part finished to renovation, gonna be a summer project I think ;)

I have to agree. I looked through some of your other albums and it's amazing work. Very professional. I'd never be able to attain that level of finish. Incredible!

Very nice result. The bigger scale makes it almost passable as a 1:1.
