Questions re sequences and clear coating
Posted by GLnewmodeler on Sunday, May 20, 2018 2:34 PM

Hi everyone,  I'm a newbie to this forum and a returnee ( > 50 years ) to modeling so everything has gone way beyond me.  Last built models for fun in my teens but now want to do as good a job as I can.   I've searched the web for info and it's good but still questionable.   Does anyone have a source I can search for the sequences you need to go through for painting/detailing to make a model come out looking good ( note: I'm not yet into aging, etc. but that could be included)?  Also, I've painted my THunderbolt with canned spray paint but I've read you need to clear coat the model before attaching decals and then clear coat again.  I've also read the opposite!  What do I need to do at this stage before decaling and after.   This has been a great learning experience so far but I don't want to mess up the model at this point.  Thanks for listening and any help you may provide.
