    Any one ever used this stuff? Does anyone know of any issues with it, especially with regards to decals?

    Is it a can of gloss coat, Andy?

    ....ah quick search says it is an Acrylic gloss.

    I use their Acrylic Gloss H-30 in the small jar and it is good stuff, quite possible it is the same gloss clear coat?

    Its actually a flat-Matt coat Wayne. I'm just hoping there's no decal destroying horror stories out there that I should know about!

    Andy if you aren't sure about the coat you always can apply one cote of the same gloss varnish you used as the "smooth basis" for decals.In that way you will protect decals against the flat-matt one.

    Well? then there must be a couple of them then Flat and Gloss, I found the Gloss and it looked like your posted shot...need to take another look...

    I've had no issues with the Gunze Acrylic Gloss and Flat coat......it's gotta be the same stuff I use in the bottles...

    As Wojtek says extra coat of gloss won't hurt...I always do 2 coats of gloss.
