Difference between the future varieties
« on: April 26, 2017, 12:12:23 am »
Hi Guys, I have now asked me the question what exactly there are differences between the individual future varieties.
I have Pledge from UK, Sols Plus from FR / NL and Furture from Sprue Brother Models.
Pledge have the consistence from Milk and Sols plus are al little bit thinner and the Furtre from Sp is very clear and a little bit thick.
What are de difference between this variants?
Is original Future better for clear parts and sealing the Model for the Decals and Weathering as Plegde and Sols Plus?
Thanks.

Difficult to answer unless we're  chemists.

From personal observation the original UK Klear product was excellent at everything. I use it for a pre-decal coating, a post-decal coating, general glossing and for clarifying canopies too. It dries fast and hard and can be applied with a brush or an airbrush, although I only used the latter once. Ordinary brushes work just as well and leave a smooth, streak free finish.

Later on, apparently due to 'EU Regulations', they changed the formula, and luckily put it in a different bottle design, and I find that it's not as good. The current product streaks somewhat and it's not as glossy.

Luckily I laid down six bottles of the original version, and I'm only on the 2nd of those so far.  ;) :thumbsup:

I'm at the end of the only bottle I have, and carefully using what little is there!

Rumour has it that the American version, called 'Pledge' I believe, didn't have its formulation changed when the Euro laws changed ours, so it maybe worthwhile trying to import some, but I'm not sure how we'd sneak it past HM Customs.  :banghead:
