After finding some chipped paint spots on my test model that I haven't even completed (what the heck!!!), I stated thinking about putting varnish on it. What do you guys use? I have used the matte varnish spray that citadel makes in the past, but I am afraid of using it again as I live in such a wet area (Portland OR) and I know if conditions aren't perfect it can make the model look bad. Are there any other options?

Thanks!

Surprised no one replied to this for you in a month! LOL.

I use Testors dullcote and have for years. I've rarely run into difficulty. (on the rare occasion in the past i held the can too close to the model and it came out white. But that was my fault, not the spray's)

Can't believe that I missed this too Evil or Very Mad

I also use Dullcote. I'm also on the West coast were the humidity can be a problem(not Portland bad, but we get a fair amount of fog on the central coast). I've had one bad can in 15 years, though I must admit that just about any spray varnish will get cloudy if the humidity is high enough. Hope this helps.

I actually went with a satin polymer varnish from Golden Varnishes. After a few overly watered down test runs, my final coat came out pretty good. The model is maybe a little bit shinier but not enough for me to be concerned. I hope to post a pic soonish (my wife is the one with the camera).
