I done mine out my back garden too but I think it got the wrinkle look because of the wind, these are the steps I do all my spraying by and everything I spray comes out shit looking, even metal or plastics.
1# I sand as best I can, with the models it's tricky cos I don't want to brake or sand out lines that should be on the car.
2# I use halfords white or gray primer in two or three light coats.
3# I spray with halfords paint 2 or 3 light coats then let it dry! That's it.
Sometimes I mite clear coat it but I don't always do that cos I don't want to ruin it cos it go's dull and then I'd have to wet sand it, and I'm not sure on doing that I case I feck that up too.

Heating your paint can help it flow better

Warm cans means the paint flows better and ya get less dribbles and spitting.
Also, sprays better. Warm gas expands.

Tip I learned before,
If you want to use real colors, but you ave an airbrush for models,
Put a can into a vice upside down, then drill into the base.
Slowly and carefully. When you pierce the can, the propellant comes out but the paint stays in. Then when its finished, you can pour the paint out of the can into a collection cup and thin to use in the airbrush gun.

Wow that's a hell of a tip but I don't have air brushes, I'm only starting to get in to it.

This is the start of my rocket bunny s13, I used filler and a small piece of plastic for the spoiler. I'm gonna use another s13 and cut it up for over fenders.

Ever heard of green stuff?
It's a modelling putty used to blend and mod all sorts of stuff. Even seen lads make cloaks and capes for figures with it.
Great stuff nd easy to work with. Can be got in gamesworkshop or on eBay.
