Ahoy All,

Some members have been having issues with these 2 products produced by the same company.
I have contacted them and this is their response regarding TESTORS DULLCOAT and MM LUSTERLESS FLAT.

So depending what paints you use, use these products accordingly.


Hi Joe,

Thank you for contacting Rust-Oleum Product Support.

No the Testors Dullcote and Model Master Lusterless Flat are not the same.

The Dullcote is specially formulated to be able to go over any Testor acrylic, enamel or lacquer.

The Model Master can only be applied over enamel and lacquer in the Testor or Model Master lines.

If you have any additional questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,
Beth F.


Hope this can be of help,
Cheers,
Joe

Sorry for the typo error in the title.
