    Dose anyone know how to undo a matt finish? I sprayed my Blenheim with Poly scale flat finish and now the plane has a white chalky look to it. I was thinking to just apply a cote of future over top but I wanted to run it past you guys first.

    The simpliest way is to apply a gloss dope. If you have the Poly one I suggest using of the one.

    I'm with Wojtek. Give that a try first. Is it real humid out your way right now? That's what caused it for me in the past, high humidity.

    If the gloss doesn't help you may have to strip it and repaint.
