Train Model

I was asked to paint this train model by a customer following a sample. The sample is in red. It has been painted using the spray paint which has been given a glossy look. However the sample was not smooth but the painting is very precise.

Mine was painted with pine green with white and gold trimmings. Everything is done manually, thus the process is very slow. I had smoothened the surface using sand paper and apply sealer before painting it. By the way, the model is made of fiberglass. Its hard to do precision painting when you do it manually....straight line may not appear as it should be.
