Another learned lesson in modelling from the archives. Spraying on a very cold day will make it very uneven and dull.

Had a mat wrap D!, people pay a lot of money for that effect.

Nice build even so. Yep, paint is very temp sensitive. Always spray above 65degrees.

A warm place is best. With cans, to warm in a bowl of warm water is recommended also. That look of paint reminds me of a '47 Plymouth I saw. Painted orange with the"pebbled" finish, it was named "orange roughy!"

Looks like an expensive wrap to me. You captured the typical Porsche interior colour rather well. Great work.

I'm with the others in that I thought it was a deliberate 'matte' finish until I read your commentary. She looks fantastic

Ok, thank you for all the positives. It is always appreciated. Now I will have to hunt down another kit and do it properly this time.

You could always take it apart, clearcoat and polish it?

Good idea. Time to practice some colour sanding and polishing I think.
