Hi All. Started doing this for a little change from Military stuff, and to tie in with a Facebook group build.
It's the ICM Model T kit.
I am intrigued as to how you will tackle the big leather seat?
I haven't had a lot of experience with painting cars and therefor gloss finishes but the method that I used when have done it worked well. I'm sure that methods have moved on but I (using gloss enamel paint):
Misted on the first coat (60/40 paint/thinner), this gives a key and is left for a couple of minutes. The next coat is misted on but a little heavier than the first and is left for 10 minutes. The third coat has a more thinner added (50/50) and is a proper colour coat, this is left for 20 minutes and while waiting look over the surface and pick out any bits of crap while the paint is wet. The next coat, which can be the last one (depending how things are looking), has more thinner added (40/60), another proper coat and pick out any bits. If it looks like another coat is required again thin the paint (30/70), this is now to unify the surface and again painted after 20 minutes of the previous coat. You can take this further using the same formula, but I would suggest practicing this.
Yep enamel, that shows that you didn't read my post properly!
You could play with this method, the original plan had virtually neat thinners to finish and I think that I only used 3 coats, the trick is picking out ant bits and applying the next coat after only 20 minutes, as this allows them to blend into each other. I guess that's why more thinner each time. I didn't bother but the final part is polishing the finish. I believe that the original explanation used tooth paste but plastic polish will, of course, be good
