Anyone know what happens if you shoot a gloss clear coat over "naked" plastic?

It seals in the freshness . Just make sure you're completely confident it's not lacquer. I've seen some clears that don't indicate what it is.
I've got a 69 Vette in Revell orange styrene. There are no swirls or mold lines showing. So, I shot it in Testors One Coat "Wet Look". I didn't have any issues.

Doc, can I post a previously built unpainted model?
Sure, Mike, eye candy is eye candy. By all means.
We doing WIP pics on this or just finished shots? (not that I've made any progress yet. Lol)
Joe, both, you can post previous finished builds, and you can also do in progress. That's fine.

I would say if you are sealing in decals that is fine, but normally, I think the trick behind this CPB is to leave the styrene (the body only) in the raw but POLISHED, BUFFED, scrubbed with NOVUS type products, which is fine.

The color of the car is the bare plastic by the way. I hope this is Ok, if not I'll remove the pic. Dan
