69 Chevy Nova SS by Revell

69' Revell Chevy Nova SS

Just wanted to post my first pic to see if it works out. Hope I have the right place.

This is my fifth of six models since February 2nd.  I started for the first time in almost 40 years.

I only use acrylic paints and sealers applied with brushes and foam brushes.

The paint is "Bright Blue" matte by Apple Barrel

The Varnish is "Gloss" by Deco Art and buffed with Pledge surface wax in a spray can.

I apply the outer body paint with a damp foam brush from a dollar store, then, 3 or 4 coats of varnish (matte or gloss) the varnish should be runny from the foam brush.

Then I spray a tiny bit of Pledge on a tissue, apply and buff.

I also use brands such as Folk Art and Craft Smart.

Well that's upsetting. That said, from my screen, my photo is in my post right above you. 

I posted the pic via a link to my google+ post of the pic. Any suggestion?
