If you're suffering from paint rub, here's what I do:

Follow the Super-glue joint protection tutorial listed on the F.R site. I believe it's authored by Dr. Nightmare. (Make sure you use "Krazy Glue" brand glue - it's watery when it goes on, and self-levels. Gel-based superglues leave a lot of white dusting when they gas-off during the drying process).


After it dries (I always leave mine overnight just to make sure, or at least a few hours) you're left with an ultra-glossy surface that the paint won't scrape off of.

To protect the rest of the figure, and to achieve a consistent finish, I found using Vallejo brand Varnishes (Matte is my preference) painted over top works amazingly well.

Vallejo (the brand Kyle Robinson uses) is good paint - but their varnishes are even better. I bought mine for about $4.00 per bottle at a hobby store. They come in eye-dropper bottles, which keeps the contents from drying out as you use it (unlike Citadel varnishes).

Hope this helps,

I use Testors Model Masters Matte Sealer. but you can go to any craft store and get the generic brand and get the same affect/results. I have.

you should use an acrylic sealer. but I recently used a ployurethane coating over arcrylic and it came out really nice. very protected too. the acrylic sealer won't have the gloss the urethane does, so you can go either way.
