    What do you guys use from paint rubbing off on joint areas? For the rest of the figure do you use gloss?

    For joints, I sometimes stand the hinge down a very slight bit to allow for the tiny layer of paint.
    Also, letting the paint fully cure is invaluable for avoiding scraping. A week is sometimes necessary.

    sanding the joints , priming and top coat are the best you can do. letting everything fully dry after a few days is good too
