I have been building this model. And other than installing the deflector dish in backwards (don't ask, no idea what to do about that), I painted the model gloss white, and now I am applying the aztec decals that came with the model. I didn't know pearl white had to be used UNDER these, I though it was a gloss that went over them. It's looking I will just have to use a gloss coat on the ship, and be done with it. Any advise as to how/if I can make any type of pearl gloss work? Has anybody else done this?
