For small areas they are fine, but you need to practice to get a good finish, as the paint is incredibly thin & runs very easily.
The only time I use spray cans is for specialist paints, such as high temperature stove paint for smoke box & chimney etc!!
Also You are limited to colours on the shelf, which tend to be for modern cars, which are not always traditional traction engine type colours!

But for a 2" build, it may make sense, but I personally wouldn't use them, as there are better alternative paints to use!

regards,
Tony
