When mixing epoxy for use on covered joints(tail planes etc) try mixing a drop of Humbrol enamel into the mixed epoxy (the same colour as your covering) Wipe off the excess that is squeazed out with Methylated spirit on a rag,forming a thin fillet .This will set as glossy as your covering hideing the joint.Be careful to use only a small amount of paint and it will not effect the setting times of the epoxy.It doesn't seem to affect the epoxy in any way other than the required colour and it saves you painting the joints later. DON'T use Solarlac as this makes the epoxy stringy and difficult to apply.
