Laquer does give you a shiny look, but the problem is I couldn't find any
gold paint that has the luscious bright yellow tone. Most of them had this
copper-ish tone and no matter how shiny you make it look, the color is still
not close enough to the gold plating Bandai used on their BB Gundams.

Which brand/type of gold paint did you use?

Eddie
