    I Say! Do you mean the old jargon type banter, old bean? Whizzo,what?
    Great bit of info, Jan. the bit about using SNJ powder was particularly useful, and will compliment some of the methods I have developed for NMF finishes. When I've experimented on the Sabre, I'll post a thread on Natural Metal Finishes.
    Thanks, great post.
    Terry.

    On all of my previous kits, I've used spray gloss coats and not future but I'm switching over (partly because my local Hobby store has a limited stock).

    I've read Swanny's Complete Future and he says that it's possible to dilute the Future with Isopropyl Alcohol (suggested mix 3 parts Future to 1 part Alcohol). Does anyone actually thin their Future gloss coats? Or do you simply go straight Future? Anything to watch out for?

    Also, what sort of drying time do you allow for the Future Coat? I'm using Acrylics so take that into account if it makes a difference.

    Thanks. :)
