Re: Finish issues

Thanks for the ideas, Mike. I’m not certain how many days the decals dried before the gloss coat was applied. From my photo documentation, the models were painted December 5th. The decals were completed December 14th and the flat coat was applied December 21st. I usually wait a day or so before spraying the gloss coat after the initial car coat is applied. I also wait at least a day after the decal work is done.


I do not recall seeing any issues after the gloss coat had dried.

Future will cloud up like that when it gets Micro Sol or Solvaset on it for a while Nelson. It usually (always?) goes away when it dries, even the areas under decals. How long did the Future dry before you put decals on Eric? It is almost like the Micro Set drove the moisture content of the Future up and then the flat coat put those areas over the top and dried from the outside in trapping the moisture. I'm trying to figure this out so I can avoid the same thing!
