I haven't built or painted an actual plastic model since I was about 14, so this part was pretty tough. Painting alone was a good reminder as to part of the reason why I no longer build models; it's a pain. Lots of wet sanding, and polishing, repainting, etc. I've never used that chrome bare metal foil before either, but it was a "must have" on this one. The paint used was Testors Laquer, but clear coat was Rustoleum Lacquer. Figured the thicker clear would be best for the occasional bang or scrape into the base board or chair. Also to address that, was the use of some carbon fiber stripping around the body attachment points, a lot was used up front (not pictured, behind the radiator housing.)
