Water Based PolyUrethane paint. Designed for floors, so it is a tough paint. Water based is not as tough as oil based, but it is much easier and 'cleaner' to use - seeing you just wash brushes in water.
It tends to be "self levelling" so it flows into a smooth surface, even though it was hand brushed on, I use a 25mm brush approx. and I do 'medium thick' coats (hard to tell someone what that really means! medium thick...). But anyway, you can do almost anything and not stuff it up!
By the end of numerous coats you will see it looks somewhat like a fibreglass plane - because it has made a clear shell over the plane.

Use SATIN, not gloss.

It helps a lot to make a foamie last much longer, and reduce/prevent "grass rash" - which is where the foam gets eaten away by the friction of sliding on grass/ground.
