To achieve a great high gloss shine on your next build or custom, try spraying it with Future floor wax using your airbrush. It will not yellow over time. It works great and cleans up really easy with water! If you have any spots where you sanded after the final color coat, make sure you hit it with progressively finer grits up to 1500. Otherwise the Future will not adhere correctly. I learned that the hard way! That's what I used on the model below...

Thanks, Souky! It looks great in with my other motorcycles! I'd say the quality of the finished model is comparable with Minichamps bikes - but this is more fun to put together!!!

Using future is something I consistently hear about but have never tried. I am going to be doing some repaints soon, I guess I could practice using this method in hopes of trying it.

Darrick,
Go ahead and try it. I'm sure you'll like the result.

One more note - If you end up spraying it a little thick, it may cause a white haze as it dries. Don't worry though, it clears up when it dries!!!
