I'm kind of a noob when it comes to modelling, especially when working with flat paint finishes. I have been working on gloss-painted aircraft for a couple of years now (mainly Century Series a/c with ADC Gray or BMF) and have had no problem with decal application. I have tried my first "modern" fighter, an F-15 Eagle with the old Compass Gray paint scheme. I put on a few decals and after they dried, they looked...well, like decals! They are too glossy and at certain angles the film stands out like a sore thumb.
My question is, is it possible to blend them in better using a decal setting solution, followed by a flat clear coat? I heard of the method of using Future to apply a gloss coat for the decals and then dull coat everything after all is said and done, but I am a bit hesitant, in fear of ruining the finish.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
