Default ULTRAKOTE over MONOKOTE??

How well does Ultra Kote stick to Mono Kote and vice versa?

Due to color considerations, I would like to use both brands, but I am concerned
Ultra Kote may not stick well to Mono Kote.

What about it, Minn Flyer or RC Ken?

Safebet,
You can apply ultrakote over monokote with no problems. The Ultrakote is a lower temperature covering than the monokote is so you should be able to apply it with little problems. But if you want to put monokote over ultrakote you may have problems applying it with heat. In a case like this you may want to try putting the monokote over the ultakote using the "windex" method. There is a really good "how-to" on using the windex method here:

Hope this helps

Ken

Thanks. I appreciate both of you very much as I'm sure many other do on this forum.
You guys always quickly answer questions for us "beginners."

Thank You
