The Correct Pledge
Posted by rt_wolf on Monday, August 06, 2018 11:11 PM

Hello all,

Just seeing if this the correct Pledge to use as gloss coat -

https://www.pledge.com/en-us/products/pledge-floor-gloss

I am returning to the hobby after 25 years away and trying to get back up to speed.

Thanks!

Yes.

Although I don't use it much anymore myself except for canopies, instrument panel instrument glass, navagation lights and making small windws.

That kind of sounds like you use it a lot.

Just to confirm you and Steve are right, this was posted right here on FSM a couple months back.

LOL, OK you got me, I should have said I don't use it for a gloss coat anymore.

Ha, yep, Ernie. I decided to stop chasing this silly stuff about 3 label changes ago. There are so many better products out there now than when Swanny started all this Futuremania with one article so many years back.

Anyway, that's my opinion. When I got back in the hobby years back, finding that elusive bottle of "Future" seemed like to most important thing, and I must have wasted the better part of several days chasing about town. Surely, I reasoned at the time, unless I had a bottle of this magic elixur there could be no way I could turn out models like the ones I saw online.

Remember felt like I'd discovered the Holy Grail when I finally returned home with my bottle. Geeked

It still amazes me, as painfully slow as it is here, how many new threads pop up with "Future" as a subject.

It does have it's virtues, being "strippable".

Valid point. I'd forgotten about my first conopy dip and how easy it was to strip.
