This is a Jeep CJ-2A, modified from an Italeri 1/35 scale kit. I used styrene to scratch build the tailgate (the military MB has none), the protruding headlight housings, and the windshield braces and mirror. I don't often do a gloss finish, and at this scale, the panels are pretty small to buff anyway. Over black primer, I used Rustoleum brand gloss spray paint, matching a list I brought into the store of factory colors appropriate for a post-war Jeep. After that cured, I brushed on two coats of Future with a soft, long-bristled brush.
