Re: My first airbrush

I have some Floquil that is over 40 years old, and still can be used. It appears to be how well the seal on the bottle is maintained.

Hmmmm,Jack. Do you really think the Floquil will keep that long?
I'm still using some Scalecoat from the original company on Velmont Ave. in Birmingham, Alabama and gave Armand Premo a bottle of 410M
years ago that had "dried out" but which he managed to resurrect.
I have yet to find Floquil that could/would ever match that longevity, however. Or will you have all 100 resin kits constructed within the next six months???? VBG
