  1. I had tried everything I could think of over the last several years to get Future/Pledge to airbrush consistently smooth. My original reference was the Swanny's Models article all about it. Sadly, the link seems to be defunct today: https://www.swannysmodels.com/TheCompleteFuture.html I tried Isopropyl Alcohol, Windshield washer fluid, distilled water, Simple Green, and maybe even Mr Color leveling thinner. All of them gave inconsistent results. The results were sometimes rough/pebbly and sometimes it would crawl and pool up on me. So, recently, I swore I would stop trying and use clear coats made for models going forward....but I'm a cheapskate! I tried one more time! I used this flow aid at about 30-40% ratio and it airbrushed/atomized well. The result was really smooth and nice...smelled good too! I'll let you know if the results are repeatable but I'm encouraged to try again. I bought this stuff at a craft store, Michael's.
  2. It looks like I might actually finish a kit for the first time in many years! Yay! It's not an LS yet but at least it's a P. I'm at the stage where I'm about to gloss coat the whole thing to get it ready for decaling. Now I've seen a lot of varied opinions on Future (or Klear or whatever it's called these days) some swear by it and use it for pretty much everything, others seem to consider it the new F-word (which is technically also swearing... ) So my question, should I use it as a gloss coat and why or why not? If not, what are your preferred alternatives?
