@ Lars: Yeah, glossy indeed. XH558 in unique as being a Vulcan with a Gloss finish for its camo!
No, the DecalFix is to help settle the decals onto the model, similar to micro sol/set. But if you let the Decalfix pool, it has a tendency of 'burning' through your paint and leaving you with a nice white spot.
Yeah, it does have raised panel lines, they aren't really visible here because of the sheer amount of sanding that I had to do to this model. I really wouldn't recommend this model if you wanted to get one (though I don't know what other options there are), the hassle involved is just too much!
