    First time that I tried painting a scale model kit with Krylon spray paint. I used the wrong type of white paint. I accidentally used paint that gives a bit of texture. But I'm ok with the final result. I got a couple of things to glue on, and the model is done. I used AMT's Peterbilt White Freightliner Dual Cab model kit.
    More pictures to come. This is just a test shot I took with my iPhone.

    Very cool! It might not be too far gone. If you can take all the trim & stuff back off, you may be able to get a light-sand in there with some fine-grit sandpaper & smooth-out that texture. The rivets on the cab might pose a problem, but it's worth a shot. Steel-wool might be an even better, more thorough technique, then just repaint again after it's smoothed-out.
