Hi Quang. 


Some metal colors are actually slightly transparent and in that case using a gloss black layer improves the light reflection of the metal layer. 


I once saw a P-51 for which the modeller had used gloss black for the fuselage and a fine grey surfacer for the wings before spraying alclad. I was surprised by the intensity of the difference between both painted areas. 




Thank you for your sensible explanation. Maybe my silver coat was too thick to show the difference.
