Dullcote from the can has always worked well for me. Best results have come from submerging the can in warm water for 10 mins before spraying.

I also second the Vallejo clear coat. I like that they are in drop bottles for easy transfer to the airbrush.

I use to recommend PollyScale before they announced that they would discontinue the line. However, if you can still find it, it's still a great option.
