It's been years since I did a model but did use Duplicolor. My old body shop days taught me that lacquer could be applied WITH CARE!!!
I use to use a couple THIN coats of lacq primer and allow it to dry. Start applying the lacquer kind of dry, allowing a lot of set up time in between. Also, using a hair dryer at arm's length from the surface, and moving it around. This was also to prevent blushing. I remember doing a 41 Lincoln Continental in dark blue to come close to orig. It was a labor of love but it did come out well.

A neat trick with Duplicolor on seats it to apply it a little wet and let it wrinkle a bit. It replicates leather to a T. Would then hit it lightly with Testor's Dullcote.

Re Dullcote. Went to a hobby shop to get some and the guy said it's not available anymore.

What I did find was Krylon Matte finish at an art supply store. Used Dull cote in the garage to de gloss parts. Phosphate/oil fender bolts can be replicated by painting old bolts and dulling them down to get the look. On my 68, am using stainless bolts that have the same shape as originals.

Never been in a Michael's. There's one nearby, will check it out.
