 Been reading up on Future.  Did a search and found a lot of good info, but....  I just want to confirm that Future will work with the paint I'm using.  I'm using Dupli-color auto primer and paint.  Is this good with Future.  Can I put the decals and BMF on first and then dip the body?  That seems to be the easy way to go, and the hardest way to screw it up.  One coat or two?  Thanks.

 

Just went further in this thread and found the vidieo that answered all but the Dupli-color paint ?  It sounds like brushing it on is almost fool proof.

Yes. Future won't hurt anything, it's just clear acrylic.

I for the first time shot Future threw the A/B, very nice, I have in the past used the foam brush method,  now I need to remove it for the first time, I got a little over zealous, and went for a second coat, and have runs everywhere,  I think I need to lower the PSI some .

 

I have been trying all different sorts of clear coat options, and debating what I want to do,  as much as I like the shine that  2k, or even 1k has, I dont want to deal with that stuff, I love Mr Hobby clear , but its hard to get here in the states

And this is used for...?

 

Like a polish? Do you use it after Clear Coat or does it matter?

It's acrylic clear. It's used as a clear coat.

Some retailers keep it in weird places, - the local Meijer doesn't have it in with the dedicated home care products section- it is in the grocery section for whatever reason.

So it would not be good to use with Rust-Oleum since it's Enamel?

I'm hearing from various modeling circles that the newest version of the product does not have the word "Future" anywhere on the package, and this new version is indeed a different-- and inferior-- product from the original Future.  I have not verified that fact, but I know there are folks scrambling around to different retailers looking for the older packaging.

Newer than the 2011 packaging I posted above ?

Brand-new packaging.  It's not even on the company website.  This is an image from a poster on the FSM forum:

IMAG0358.jpg

 

According to the manufacturer, it is the same product as the old Future.  However, there are some people saying it's not.  

 

It is possible they may have gotten hold of another product and are confused by SC Johnson's marketing department:

product-large-pledge-clean--shine-multi-

Notice "cleaner" on the label.  That's a dead-giveaway that it would not be suitable for model-building duty.  Bottom line right now is that if it says "Future" on the label, it's good.  My gut says the newest version is good and some people have gotten the wrong bottle.

I order the Pledge with Future Shine as advertised on the Walmart web site and got a bottle with just Pledge Floor Finish on it. It looks like Future and it is acrylic but I haven't tried any yet to see if it is the same.

Does it smell the same ?

I think the key is the Floor Care FINISH and avoid orange scented CLEANER. Read your labels!
