I found that the "stinky" (ha ha) Testor's goes on way too thick and really isn't that shiny. The Tamiya goes on paper thin (as it's flat) and then the gloss coat gives me my glow-in-the-dark shine.
P.S. The 48th scale Hasegawa -5 is almost done.
P.P.S. The first Renwall upgrade is almost done. Got the sail planes done and the bow section. Just working on the stern planes and rudder now...
