    Thanks for this info! I think I'll wait awhile before upgrading...I'm sure more patches will follow soon. Typical Microsoft release

    One thing that was mentioned by Microsoft is this will be the last version of Windows and will be updated as changes become necessary. I plan on downloading Windows 10 as an .ISO file

    Kevin, what do you use for a clear coat?

    It's good to see this build re-posted. Fine looking truck and trailer and unbelievable weathering!

    What an extremely talented young man. His work is top notch!

    Yes it does. But how it compares to thinning with something other than Future I can't say.

    Gold lettering and pinstripes =  a sharp looking truck!

    That's right! Last time I purchased it was online from Walmart because my local store didn't stock it anymore. Can't figure as to why they changed the name

    My personal choice for warming paint cans is a dehydrator set @ 85 degrees. After 3 or 4 minutes, I remove it and shake it. Then back in for 2 minutes, remove, shake and paint.
    This is what I use for shaking aerosol cans: http://mixkwik.com/
    It does a great job!!

    Here's a link to a 6 part video series on using Createx paints that I found helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z74p0mpNO-Y

    One of the advantages of using Future is no "dry tip". It really helps lay the paint down. Supposedly a product called Quick Shine multi-surface floor finish can be used in place of Future. I purchased some, but have not tried it. It seems that some people are having difficulty finding Future in stores.
    Thanks for sharing that info!

    Createx Paints
    I purchased a package of 6 Createx opaque colors. I chose the blue (no particular reason) and thinned it with Future...just over 2 to 1. I used a plastic spoon sanded with 600 grit and primed with Duplicolor white primer. I used my Paasche Model H single action airbrush set @ 30 psi. I applied 4 light coats and between each coat I dried the paint with a hair dryer set to warm. I clear coated with Future using the airbrush set @ 20 psi.
    I must say that I'm extremely pleased with the results. If anyone is/has used this paint, I would appreciate feedback based on your experience.
