one question .. do you guys seal/finish off your paper models with matt varnish once completed, im wondering if a very light coat of matt varnish would help tie the shiny printed paper in with the matt water colour touch ups
usually, unless its an airliner. In that case, it would be gloss coat. If you do anything with a canopy though, do not spray that.

I haven't done it myself, as I paint most of my models, but I have a ship model gathering dust that I wish I'd applied some sort of coating to, to make it easier to remove said dust.

Just make sure if you're going to apply a protective coating that you use one that is acid free (most sprays designed for coating photos are acid free), so it doesn't leech the ink from your model.
