Gloss coat question


Recommended Posts

I'm working on a 1/16 scale tank model and I'm getting ready for the gloss coat prior to decaling.

Since the model is large and the area covered by the decals is small, can I confine the area of gloss coat

To the areas covered by the decals or should I cover the entire model with gloss? I plan to cover the entire model with clear Flat afterwards. I'll be using tamiya acrylics.

I did some partly gloss jobs on different models as a base for decals. If you can be certain that the covering flat varnish doesn't show different shines as an after effect you are good to go. I never had any problems doing so, but you can test it on a spare part with your usual gloss and matte varnishes to be sure.

Cheers Rob
