    Somebody suggest I use this on my thundercracker custom to take away the shinyness. Do I just get the spraycan kind and spray the whole thing with stickers on it and all or do I brush it on like paint???? Thanks for your help!

    From what I know, you should be able to find it in a spray can, this way it's easyer/faster to apply. Just one thing, have you already clear coated him?

    Yup. Use light mist coats to do it.

    What you'll want to use is Testors Dullcote spray. Whatever you do, do not use Krylon Matte as it eats away at any soft PVC or acrylic paint.

    Yeah, go with the dullcote, or get some future floor wax and some model masters flat acryl and mix and apply with a brush, no acetone and it'll keep the metallic colors metallic.
