I've been wondering about this since I started the model.  Even though I'm not there yet, I can't stand not knowing:  So, I've got my nice, flat military camo job.  I spray the whole plane with future to protect the acrylic paints.  Now I have a rather glossy camo job.  Is the model then treated with some kind of dull coat to get the shiny out?

Yes ...After you decal and the weathering is done the last thing to do is spray a flat coat over and it will dull down the Future shine

I use Winsor and Newton Matt UV Varnish works really well and protects your work from UV light

Windsor & Newton have great products. I have been using Vallejo 70.520 Matt Varnish with good results also. One good point about the Windsor and Newton products is that most all dedicated "art" shops carry their products.

Thanks gentelmen, I may be able to get that matt varnish at Hobby Lobby.  Does it need to be thinned for airbrushing, if so, what do you thin it with?

Thanks again,

I thin mine with a 50/50 mix with Bobby's Homebrew but before that Tamiyas X-20A acrylic thinner but I'd imagine you could use most acrylic thinners. Now the 50/50 mix is just for your standard matt finish you can adjust for a more semi matt or more flat, just depends on what your wanting.
