Pumpkin Run

I displayed some r/c boats today at a local event.It's called the Pumpkin Run in Egg Harbor Township NJ.It is a show that has everything under the sun.It has a car show,some garden tractor pulling,steam engines,hit and miss engines,blacksmith,vintage tractor trailers etc.I tried to enlist more members for my r/c boat club.It can only help the hobby.Two or three sounded genuingly interested.The boats drew more attention than I thought they would.People liked the craftsmanship of the boats and had an appreciation for the time invested making them.

I'm approaching the final coats on Miss Behave. I have been experimenting on a scrap and am not yet happy with results. The resulting finish after polishing compound and auto wax is a little dull and grey for my taste. If I do not use wet/ dry sanding I have a few specks of dust etc. which is distracting but after wet sand and polish I don't like the finish. Any tips? How do you get the beautiful final finish I see in your photos? Thanks in advance.
