In addition to Ken's question, I have another. Does the future hold up to any type of paint going over it? On my current build I'm going to use Tamiya primers. The Tamiya won't attack the Future, will it?


I'll jump in with my experience, namely that most paints except the hottest lacquers will not affect Future.

Ken,

I airbrushed the Future right onto the bare plastic..............you don't have to thin it since it is quite thin right out of the bottle. I like to wait a couple hours or maybe overnight for it to dry and then take 600 grit sandpaper and very lightly sand out any airbubbles that might form.

Steve,

I've not tried Tamiya's paints over Future.....all the paints I have used were acrylic enamels, such as Dupont.

Here's a couple pics of a '55 T-Bird I built back in '99............this was Monogram's '56 I converted to a '55 and molded in that terrible red plastic! Looking at the car, you'd find it hard to believe it was molded in that color. I shot the Future on the bare plastic first and then primered it.

Like anything..............I would test it on something scrap to see how it'll react.

Hope this helps! :)

P.S. I ran across this website about how a military guy uses Future.......I think you'll find it interesting------ click HERE to check it out!

The interior is the next and last major thing to do. I started with flocking the floor..........I like to do this square by square as the paint dries kinda fast. I used Tamiya flat black as a base (water based acrylic).

The dash was next on the agenda. Revell's instructions tell you to put the clear lens in place and then put the decal on the clear lens. This doesn't make sense because the adhesive is on the wrong side............

What I did was dip the decal in water as usual, but then laid the decal on the lens and then brushed it with Tamiya clear X-22. This helped flatten out the decal and also made it adhere to the lens without any distortion.

The seats, dash, side panels, and console, were painted with Testors Acryl Aircraft Black. Today's black interiors are not a pure black, but kind of a charcoal color. This stuff is great to get that effect!

Well guys and gals that'll be the last update.............It's the little details that need done now, painting the window trim and headliner, putting in the head and taillights, etc........

Keep an eye on the "Under Glass" column as I'm gonna try to get this one done before next Saturday (meeting day). :wink:

Stay tuned!

Bill, I simply skipped the water step with the gauges. I cut them out and glued them to the backside of the lenses. Two routes to the same result.

Yeah, I didn't realize I coulda did that until after the decal was off the backing! :oops:

It's been a long time since I used dashboard decals! :mrgreen:

Thanks all you guys for all the nice and helpful comments!

I'll try to get this all done by Friday evening, so keep an eye on the "Under Glass" section for pics.

There's only a few more things to do, but working third shift can take its toll on any building during the daytime! :)
