I have used the clear flat and absolutely love it, if I could get it easier I would use it for everything. Since it is an acrylic you can also use it for a barrier coat for thinner based washes and as a base coat over vinyl parts. For any of my tank kits with vinyl tracks the tracks get a bath with this stuff and then I can use my regular paints for details the tracks without them staying sticky forever.

That would be good, most sellers I find are from Hong Kong so I'm looking at about $20 a can.
