Daywalker Posted August 9, 2013 Share Posted August 9, 2013 I am at the decalling stage in my NMF P-51D build, and am looking for advice on sealing the decals over the metal paint before weathering. I have scoured the Internet looking for tips and advice, and there seems to be just as many opinions as total aluminum finished models ever built! On my test pieces, I have tried sealing them with thinned Future (my usual favorite), Alclad Aqua Gloss Clear, and craft-store cheap matte coat (another favorite). I have about the different clear coats affecting the "look" of the aluminum finish, and if possible would like to find a method which will be the least intrusive to the Alclad finish, yet protective enough to seal the decals and unify the sheen of the surface. I do realize that I may be opening a can of worms on this one, but I would love to hear any tips and advice from those who do these finishes and manage to make them look so real. Thanks in advance, I look forward to hearing from you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
