Repainting a Diecast 1:18 in Model Building Questions and Answers Posted June 9, 2013 Thanks for your help, folks. I'll put up a thread on the Diecast/Resin forum once I can get some time to work on my project. But does anyone have any advice for clearcoating? Like I said in the initial post, I don't want my clear to end up tacky. Sure, the model won't be handled too much, but still, I want a good finish on it.
