    I've seen American sites refer to Future Floor Polish but I haven't found any in WA. I use Tamiya's flat clear spray for my work.
    I don't know if it adds protection but it 'levels out' the differing shininess of the paints used and generally makes them look nicer. Plus it can take some of the stickiness away.
    I get mine from hobby shops. I have seen Bunnings stock gloss and semi-gloss clear sprays but haven't tried them.

    Hope that helps.

    A top coat is definitely advisable if you want to protect your paintwork, just use Tamiya clear coat, matte and/or gloss. It comes in a spray can for quick and easy application.

    Something I saw in a video that I've tried is flushing my airbrush with warm water between colorvswaos, it seems to help clean it out a bit better than cold water

    Thanks for the advice. Will look into getting Tamiya brand coats.

    Aldi has their airbrush kit in the new catalogue. I have one of these and it is really good.

    The Aldi kit has the filter but no tank. Bunnings has the Ozito version of the kit with the tank but I don't think the filter for around the same price on special.

    I just bought one for the filter. Runs ok, small cheap compressor.
