Tamiya 3 stage compound plus wax?

Hi,

Can anyone detail to me how to use this step my step?

I know I watched a Youtube video on it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVTu5NKw10U

But he does not detail the wax portion that comes with it?

When would the wax be applied to the model?

And, what do you think about applying this on canopies instead of using Floor Wax?

Any opinions/advice and a step by step would be great. I know it's asking for a lot but I would heed your advice with much appreciation.

Step one:Course
Step two:Fine
Step three:Finish.

Wax??

Also I have a Polar Lights Back to the Future Model and a Aoshima Delorean model I think these would go great on.

Greatly appreciate everyone's input.

Respectfully,

Hound.

First model in 10 years! I'm happy with it!

Wax should be the very last step in building.  Painting over wax is very problematic (even clearcoats).

For polishing canopies I use either Simoniz Haze and Swirl Remover or Novus #2. The clarity is improved 100% when using either product.

Both products work equally well for polishing painted surfaces. I used them over cured enamel to produce a glass smooth finish on two Blue Angels F/A 18's I did a while back.
