    I haven't used future very much, but I wanted to see some opinions of when you guys coat your figures. The last time I used the stuff I sprayed it on AFTER the figure was assembled.

    I'm at the point where my current figure needs to be re-assembled, but also needs a coat or three of future.

    you should coat at least once before assembly. just to prevent rubbing.

    When I use it, I apply it to the rub areas only, as extra protection, then clear coat with the standard Satin/Gloss Krylon, then one more after assembly.

    I need to put decals down, so I'm going to have to coat the whole thing first. I was more worried about building up too much on areas that I want zero clearance. I guess I could just sand those areas down.
