So, I'm poking around on You Tube as I like to do, looking for interesting videos on model building. Besides model railroading, I also build model cars and the occasional sci fi models, too. I found a video series by a guy who usually builds Star Wars and Gundam models (giant robots), and he's building his first model car kit. A couple of things he did interested me: first, he uses Pledge Future Shine Acrylic Floor Wax to clear coat his models, straight out of the bottle, including the clear parts (which he dips) and the second was he uses lighter fluid to thin his acrylic paints when he shadows the seams between body panels. Has anyone ever heard of this before?
