Lot's of time and practice. Use many layers, usually a top layer to draw out what your kit will look like. A layer under that, in which you fill in the general colour you are going to use (usually the colour of the car). And then you have to fill in the shading so it's not flat (you want it to be 3-dimensional), using darker and lighter colours from your main colour. Once the actual kit is done you add your own reflections (from the background, or C + P from scenery, or just brushed on. It takes a lot of time to make things look perfect, most advanced choppers can pull this off. Take a look at this tut for example:
