I don't want to have to take apart my figures to paint them, as for most I just want to add details. Several tutorials have said I should be fine on that. My question pertains to sealant. If I wish to use sealant while the figure is assembled and in vehicle mode, will it harden so as to prevent transformation? I've read that rubbery stuff like tires and some heads are not to be hit with sealant, but my concern is the rest and being able for it to actually MOVE after it drys.
Thank you for your time.
Best bet would be to mask off the parts of the figure you don't want to spray. As long as you don't go crazy with the sealant, you shouldn't have a problem with moving parts afterwards.
You could also try brushing the sealant instead (Testors makes brushable gloss and dull coat, as well as thinner), but I've had mixed success with them (lacquers can lift enamel, even when cured). Future, or any other floor polish, makes a good alternative, though you're locked into a glossy finish.
