I've seen many positive comments about MRP paints on this forum and I'm anxious to try them, but I have a question. I've already primed my subject with an enamel primer, so can I use MRP directly on top of this? or do I need to put some type of barrier coat on first? If so, what would you recommend? AND is their Gloss Sea Blue fairly accurate? I guess that's several questions....LOL  Thanks in advance

MRP doesn't like overspray primed or not. I had no issues using MRP over Mr. Surfacer  1000/1500 which is not enamel but easily dissolved by MRP.

Although I haven't done it on a model, back in the day painting cars if you tried to put lacquer over enamel the lacquer thinner would attack the enamel causing it to craze. You might want to test it on some scrap parts first.

my understanding is that enamel should basically be the last thing you put on a model.. but with that logic.. surely a flat coat of typically a lacquer (Tamiya clear) on top of enamel would bugger it up, and it doesn't ?

Like others have said, test it :)

Spraying an MRP type lacquer clear over enamel washes at least works splendidly well. I do/have done it all the time.  Now that is not enamel paint however, and as suggested above, Id get a mule and test that theory.
