    1/48th scale, built OOB just added a resin seat. Have been using revell clear and I am not really that happy with the finish, but at least this one is finished.

    I really hate this stuff but had to use it because it does not go yellow overtime since the model is light grey/white but if i had a choice i would not use it. Just my opinion, what works for me does not mean that it is good for somebody else and vice-versa. I think that we are a bit limited in varnishes that would not yellow over time and be joy to apply. I am open to any suggestions as long as it is not floor polish.

    Why are you so hell bent against floor polishes, they are just another chemical and might after all be suitable for a particular application. I would never use them as a varnish, but i must admit that they work wonders on clear canopies.

    I agree with you about using it for canopies, have used it and i admit it made the canopy crystal clear, although achieving a perfect product is easier said than done. Used it as overall varnish, and was not impressed, to get a got gloss version had to apply several layers and still did not get a good glossy surface, but it could have been me and really reluctant to try it again.

    What did u use? I am taliking about the famous 'future'. What i noticed, however, is that when i used it on the 262's in the wheel bay, i could seal in the decals on the testors metallizer paints without ruining the metal effect which is more than i can say for the testors sealer. This completely ruins your metallizer effect and it is meant to be used with the paint. I have never sprayed it yet. I am afraid it will ruin the airbrush. It is self-levelling so when you apply it by brush, it leaves no marks. I only applied it by brush and the finish was excellent. It was not so glossy though.

    it is the same thing. Airbrush did not recieve any damage. As for spraying properties I can not recall any trouble whatsoever, but has been a while. As for the sealer I agree with you that it does more harm than good to the metalizers, used it once and will not be using it again.

    I used it on my Panther, very difficult to spray! exellent for canopies and clear parts. i used it on the panthers dull canopy. It does get glossy but you have to build up the layers. You can even make it almost mirror finish. very easy to brush on! its VERY thin so no thinning required. but when it dries after brush painting on a matt surface first time round it alomst disappears.

    Havnt got any airbrush damange. even after about 10 goes..

    I do agree that half the world use it! especially the brits. they have a new formula. there are other alternatives..
