    Pledge is glossy, and you want to apply decals (if waterslide type) on a glosscoat finish so l would say go:
    Pledge-decals-dullcoat

    Applied thickly over joints, either of sealers will possibly stiffen joints.

    I tend to shoot Pledge through my airbrush unthinned, but brushing it on is fine as it rarely leaves brush stroke marks.

    Remember, adding any kind of paint or sealer is adding layers and increasing thickness. So clearance and joint issues can arise. This leads to "paint rub" where moving parts can scrape away paint

    Thanks for the advice! I haven't upgraded to an airbrush yet so I'll be brushing the Pledge on. Stickers I have are just regular ol' plumbuses...er...I mean stickers so I'll stick 'em on first then Pledge, then Dullcote.

    Oh, one more question - is it better to seal and finish the figure fully assembled or in pieces and then reassemble it?

    Personally l do it when the figure is assembled. You can do it when apart but ive never seen the need to.
