Clear coat question

1876 Views 16 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  ListerStorm
I am in the process of doing a custom Fly Lister Storm. I used Tamiya paint and put on the water slide decals last night. How long do I need to wait until its safe to spray the Tamiya clear on it? I have heard some people had problem of the decals getting ruined when they put on the clear coat.

Thanks for any help.

I've had success with Tamiya clear coat by spraying a few light dusting coats on the decals and body then following up with several medium coats. The light dusting coats will cover the decals but won't degrade them (I use Detail Master decal paper that has been printed in a laser copier).

I even used this method to spray directly on the decal sheets to protect the printing, which works pretty well.
