How "white" is Solartex white

I haven't used Solartex before and am getting ready to finish a new project with it and am curious if the white is a good bright white, similar to Ultracoat or Monocoat? I know it's not glossy, but I'll be clear coating it, so that shouldn't be a problem. I'd like to cover the entire model in white, and then paint my two additional colors, blue and yellow, and then clear. But not having seen the white, I'd like to ask before I order a couple rolls.

For my use, Solartex White is bright enough. This is a subjective answer, though. Only you can answer if it will be bright enough for you.

Go to Balsa USA site and they have a nice sample pack you can order. I agree with Tom, it's all a matter of preference.

Thank you for the replies. Can anyone tell me how it compares to Ultracoat in color?
