Why this model shines a lot? Plz

Definitely something to do with the radiosity settings, also white surfaces do transmit quite a bit of light when the directional rays is turned on.

You shoud check luminosity and diffuse properties. Metal must have a low diffuse

It's tough to know exactly what is causing that light without knowing more about the materials and lighting conditions. But it looks like simple light reflection on linear, untextured polygons.

-this is a default material with luminosity at 0%
-you are using radiosity with at least 1 light bounce.
-you are working in linear colourspace.

I would ignore the problem until you have applied all your materials. If it is still apparent, then worry about it, but I bet it disappears.
