Beginner painting question

Recommended Posts

I just got done with the color coat on my 1/32 P47-D. I primed it in Mr. Color black primer thinned with Leveling Thinner and used Tamiya acrylic thinned with the same Mr. Color Leveling Thinner. I tried black basing for the first time and am pretty happy with it. Since I'm using this model to get back to the hobby and learn some new techniques I decided I want to paint the markings using Montex masks. My question is, should I put any sort of clear coat over my color coat before I mask and paint the markings?


Thanks for helping out this old recycled newbie.

Albert you should be fine with NO clear coat.


Think of it this way, if you did clear it and then apply the masks, your newly painted insignia wont match the finish of the rest of the model. (It will then need a clear)
