    I just finished my 1st card model structure for an N scale ( 1/160 ) model railroad.
    I have a spraycan of Testors spray lacquer used for styrene structures.
    Could I use it on a paper structure ?

    Tia for any suggestion.

    What I have read is to use a spray matte medium sealer.

    Beautiful building! Great job!

    I don't think I would use that spray on this model because it would make it shiny and then it would look unrealistic as bricks aren't shiny.
    I would save the lacquer for a car model or something else that is supposed to be glossy looking!

    Matte spray lacquer is fine

    Either satin clear or matt clear in pressurepacks works very well for my railwaybuildings.Just apply a few coats since the paper will absorb the paint and plasticise it.It also makes the buildings a lot more robust.
