Guys, Testors has both gloss and matte clears in the Aztec line, I used their gloss. Dried very hard. I polished it up with Ultra Restore, no wet sanding needed. No base coat is needed. A really great thing is that if you have a fubar, you can just re-coat the area and it blends just like the 1:1 waterborne auto paint. The Merc was primed using Plastikote, but I have found that it really likes bare plastic. If I can find any flaw, its that the pearl colors tend to ding a bit before they're cleared, but I would think if the paint was "set" with a hair dryer one might not have that reaction. I'm going to try polishing some primer to see if the paint sticks to that as well as bare plastic. The total painting time on the Merc was 15 minutes, in a dirty and unheated garage with no paint booth, clean up time included. They make 40 colors, including transparent, opaque, and flourescent. Forgot to post the link, and the pic is of "ultra restore" from innovative hobby supply.
