Simply put,the Aero Gloss used in this way,has little to do with the finish.The Aero Gloss (thinned) penetrates, strenghtens,and makes the balsa less susceptable to the effects of water.(swelling,rotting,)
I used aprox. one quart 50/50 on inside and outside of all formers/planks/sheeting.The visible effect ? Virtually none!!!!! Where did it all go?

Observation : So much attention is given to sealing, sanding, painting the surface(s) of the craft.
Question:What happens to the wood if water enters the wood(from the inside or out) through a flaw,crack, tool damage, ding ?
