Thanks , I have built several models using miniwax polycrylic
and tissue with very good results - all the finish's have lasted
without problems . when I finished my first 737 it looked very good
till it sat in the sun for 3 days at the NEAT fair
the sun caused the foam under to develop the little bumps and
the tissue lifted in a couple of area's , I was able to repair it
but you can see the bumps if you look close .this is a comon problem
with this type of foam , some model come with warning to keep model
out of sun.
I building a large BAE hawk (same kind of foam) but have come
up with a glass lite - I used 20 min finished -cure epoxy and the heavist
tissue I could get mixed it 75% epoxy 25% alcohol and applyed it the
the same way as with the WBPU
so far the results look excellent , and hopefully will not get the bumps under
the finish . I have lived in Florida so I know how hot it get's down there.
