Hi Lightning Pilot, I used that exact Quick Shine for the top coat on my recent Me-262. I got mine from Walmart. For years the standard product was Future, but that is no longer available. I applied it by brush right on top of the enamel camouflage. It went on smooth and easy and dried in less than an hour. A lot of people say to let it dry for 1-2 days. But imo these products were designed to be applied to a floor and walked on in less than an hour. Who in their right mind would say you can't go into your kitchen for 2 days? So one hour should be OK for a little plastic toy. I didn't have any problems with my 262.

In less than two hours I was applying acrylic panel line washes and it worked great. The capillary action was smooth and tight. I also applied post shading with my airbrush for panel line accents, gunpowder stains, and oil streaks. I used dry brushing to create scratched and chipped paint. Finally I applied miscellaneous stains using graphite and the Tamiya weathering master kits.

When all weathering was done, I mixed the Quick Shine with some Tamiya X-21 flat base and sprayed it lightly with my airbrush. Gotta be careful because too much X-21 will give you a white frosty appearance. I got a really good smooth flat finish. So the Quick Shine worked great for me, I'm definitely going to use it on my future builds.

I have not yet, since I still have half a bottle of Future left.  When I need to replace that, I will.

I first heard about Quick Shine in Jon Bius' YouTube video about the product as a replacement for Future:

I have about 1/3 of a bottle of Pledge Floor Care left and it's yellowing in the bottle. Slightly but it's there. I don't use this sort of stuff much though, especially now with using Creatx 4050 or Tamiya X-22a. Or lacquer for that matter.

But I do wonder if the Quick Shine will yellow. If you think about it, floor polishes don't tend to be on floors for years at a time but it will likely take year to see if it yellows.
