  • Save a fortune on clear gloss liquid.

    Here’s a comparison for you....

    Tamiya Gloss Coat 10ml brush on. Up to 4.00
    The same in a 100ml spray can. Up to 9.00
    Pledge Floor polish liquid. 800ml for up to 14.00.

    all prices quoted are from Amazon Prime UK.

    800ml in the 10ml Tamiya jars would cost you an eye watering 160.00. The same volume in the Tamiya spray cans would cost you 64.00.
    To be specific, you need the clear liquid Pledge product called “Revive It Floor Gloss”.
    The Pledge product is what used to be sold as “Johnson’s Klear” and is without doubt the best I have come across for a clear coat. It can be sprayed undiluted through an airbrush and brushes on without leaving any brush marks. Clear plastic parts such as canopies come up gleaming crystal clear and look like real glass. Decal placement and adhesion is improved with a light coating and a further coating once the decals have dried seals them nicely. Cleaning airbrushes and bristle brushes is a cinch using warm, slightly soapy water.

      I see no reason why it wouldn’t work on die cast models.

        With a new avatar photo, after almost 20 years, and all that one day before my birthday? Confess, somewhere in your soul you are a good man.

        And I'm still lookin for a translation. Clear gloss liquid, in German.

        But that's not the fetish which you would use on a car, e.g.
        'that violet night star pearl effect color only works under at least three layers of clear lacquer.'
        ?

        I mean, the price sounds pretty much the same. 800 ml for 160,-

        I should ask Lufthansa Technik how many ml they need for a LH-B744.

        PS: The definition of a hobby: where men spend quite alot of $$ , also in contrast to their wifes. If it were cheap than it wouldn't be a hobby.
        The German long haul is alive, since more than 60 years.
        The Gold Member in the 747 club, 50 years since the first LH 747.
        And constantly advanced, 744 and 748 /w upper and lower EICAS.
        This is Lohausen International airport speaking, echo delta delta lima.
