Had one of those weekends when I've got nothing to do, so I took the Maisto 1:18 Mercedes CLS (black), sanded it down, and respray it with DupliColor's GM Gunmetal Metallic. I always like the grey colored cars with blacked-out trims, so I got rid of every silver and chrome in this car and painted them matte black.
I also repainted the interior black (from tan).

Anyways, not much else to tell.... so here are some pics:

FULLY ASSEMBLED:

















I think the blacked-out trim really compliment the car's shape, kinda giving it the 'Sport Package' appearance.

What do you think ? :feedback

A big part of it is because my digital camera won't focus right whatever I do (after it fell in the river last summer). In real life, the car is not that 'dull', but you're right, it didn't quite have the super-glossy look of the original paint. I used the DupliColor automotive paint (rattle can) and I clearcoated it. Maybe I need to color-sand it?

Thanks for all the feedback guys !
