Has anyone used the new Vallejo Hobby Paint in the spray can? If so, what are your thoughts?

I'm a huge fane of Velejo paints for both hand brushing and airbrushing. I use them mostly on armor and figures. I also build cars, so decided to try their clear gloss in the spray cans, on a car model.

Result - I hated it. Despite repeated 2 hour stints in a food dehydrator, the paint took weeks to cure. At least I think it finally cured.

It also went on wierd. Glossy on top & sides, but the transitions between the 2 were rough. I sanded it out and resprayed. Looks better the second time.

My verdict is that the flats may be just fine (don't know), but stay away from the gloss paints in the spray line.
