I have spent couple of hours last night polishing gloss black in preparations for Alclad HPA to go on. I like Tamiya TS paint and TS14 in particular. I often can get high gloss, almost mirror like, straight from the air brush. And for the places where paint is not smooth enough, Micro mesh pads and Tamiya polishing compounds can be used with great results. Also polished out few imperfections in RB7's clear coat. RB7 is all ready for decals now. Tube of polishing compound is beside MP4/25's body to show reflective qualities of finish.
