Start masking the body areas in preparation for painting the window frame/underside/light areas etc. While each section can be painted using a brush carefully, masking and airbrushing as a whole creates a better finish and is a much faster process overall. If you have not clear coated the body (or only have a thin coating) do not use this method as masking tape will possibly damage decals and body paints – in this case please proceed colouring by hand with a brush instead.For masking, use masking tape to cover the entire body, and use a modeling knife to carefully cut away areas such as the window frame/light areas etc. Be sure not to exert too much force and damage the body.

Once coloring has been finished, remove the masking and check on any irregularities in the painting.If urethane clear coat was used earlier for coating, use lacquer modeling paints: the paint will not eat through the coating, and lacquer thinner can be used to remove paint if small adjustments are needed to be made. For lacquer type clear coats, use a water base or enamel base paint. Thinner for these types of paints can be used for adjustments also without damaging the coating itself. In the end, different brands react differently so please test out various combinations ahead of time and find one that suits you best.

Use a brush to add colour to details of other parts if necessary. Painting bolts and rivet molds with silver adds another level of realism to the parts.
