Tamiya clear coat is good and easy to use.

Modelmaster clear lacquer also works just as well, which is good, considering that Tamiya no longer offers their TS-13 clear coat.

I've used Duplicolor and Modelmaster clears without any problems.

The non one coat One Coat clear is also an excellent choice.It won't harm decals.

BTW-I wonder if all the different Testor lacquer clears aren't all the same formula in cans with different labels?

Well today I try the Testors high gloss clear enamel #1814 (is the only I found local)on a spun for a test and works great,no adverse reaction with the paint,fast drying and really high gloss with just one coat.Really hope this one works good for me.

I've always used Testors enamel clear over Tamiya colour coats ; the results are consistant , and best of all : no tedious colour sanding / wet sanding and polishing !
