Patching Dings in an RG570

I am the happy owner of a gently-used RG570 from 1999 finished in Gray Nickel. It's my first Ibanez, and I couldn't be more pleased with it.

It does have two small dings in the finish, through which the raw wood shows. (See photos below.) I'm not as worried about it aesthetically as I am that more of the finish will crack off and flake away.

I've seen suggestions on the Interwebs that Testor's model paint or even nail polish would do the trick if I could match the color. Another suggestion I saw is that I should use clear nail polish to protect the wood.

Can you all help me with some advice? Thanks in advance.

The thin viscosity CA (superglue) from StewMac is perfect for this kind of thing. Run a small amount around the edge of the chip, if the paint is lifting it will pull underneath and hold everything together.

Has anyone had luck with model paint for repairing dings?

You'll have far better luck finding a fingernail polish that matches. Use that for 1 coat, then a couple coats of clear polish. It will work great.
