Gabriel - such a nice and well detailed build. Great painting in the interior and I like your colour selection for the body. I think I can see some orange peel on the paint job. Orange peel is easily removed and improves the finish a lot. Just after you apply and the clear coat and it dries give it a polish. Depending on the amount of orange peel you can even use fine micromesh cloths (4000-12000). Great work anyways and I'm looking forward to your next car model .



Kind regards, Sven.
