Very nice, you even have your own cloth-covered show room to park it in. Impressive.

yes it is metal. I'm using Dupli-color automotive touch up spray paint in the 5 ounce can. Sanded the body first with 400 grit paper, then sprayed a few coats of white sanded again with 1000 grit I believe (can't find my paper right now) then another coat of white. Now I just have to do the clear tomorrow.
Before the clear

Clear coat added and car put back together. Now I just have to add the decals. Plus I tried out that homemade bounce flash I posted about in another thread.

Very nice job! Does the windsheild and headlights and all come off easy? or like how does that work, do you have to glue them back in or something?

Very new to this as you can tell
