Have never seen this design before but interesting none the less.

Very nice metallic work. But I see a few seam lines here and there that really take away from the smooth contours of the model. And the the finish seems a little thick here and there. But otherwise good job. If I knew the design a bit better i could compliment more, but i do not. And seems that some decals would help with the plain parts, or some added detail lines or something like that.

but good job otherwise.

Thanks for feedback!

I read in many model magazines (FSM, MM, etc, ) about Future

So for this build, I tried Future for gloss coating.

But it didn't turn out well.

At low pressure, the Future sputters and splatters.

At hi pressure, I have to be very careful to avoid overcoat.

Very difficult to handle.

This is first and last time I'm using FUture.

You will never learn anything if you give up the first time something is difficult for you.  Have you heard the expression "Practice Makes Perfect"?

If it was easy, everybody could do it, and what would be the fun in that?

Thinning the Future might help, have you tried that?

Future is awesome, like Filmy said, practice. Thinning also helps. It is like spraying water, but the results are fabulous. I use FFA exclusively for all my clearcoats.

I read in magazine, Future can be applied out of bottle without thinning.

By the way, how do I thin Future?

Thanks!

I think it with Tamiya Thinner. Use about 60% FFA to 40% Thinner. Use a dual action airbrush and only pull the trigger back lightly applying thin coats. Inbetween these thin coats give the part a blast of air-only to quick-dry the future for the next layer. Repeat.

Thanks! I'll give it a shot on my next gloss finish kit.
