    I have to paint a model (with a lot of small details) made by two different parts: a black detail one and a white detail one

    I would like to obtain a glossy effect:
    any suggestions for the paint technique and type of paint?

    thank you very much!

    Glossy effect? You can achieve that with any gloss paint, preferably the ones formulated to stick to plastics. Paint in thin coats.

    Are you planning to paint them a different color, or do you just want a glossy version of the Detail materials? If it's the latter, a quick coat of Gloss varnish will do.

    What are these going to be used for? If it's going to be under stress, or outside, go enamel. Otherwise, i would recommend acrylics.

    I hope i've answered your question, and as an alternative, you could look into candy coating those parts.
