Hello, I was wondering if somebody had the same problem I had with Microscale Micro Coat Satin (or Flat) causing a white haze. I used Microscale Micro Coat Satin as finish over some parts of my kit that I had coated with Glossy Lucky Varnish from Ammo by Mig. After I had airbrushed two thin layers, some sort of white haze started to form and also some wrinkeling on the surface. Has anybody experienced this same effect? And what might cause this? Most importantly: how can I fix this? I'm hoping for some constructive reactions. Cheers, Remco.
My entry will be as above; Phantom F-4J 155755 / NG207 of VF-92 Silver Kings whilst deployed aboard USS Constellation (as part of CVW-9) from January to October 1973. The other fighter squadron in this wing was VF-96 ("Fighting Falcons") with the well known call sign "Showtime" - both squadrons were also aboard the "Conny" on its previous tour to Vietnam (1/10/1971 to 1/7/1972) though in between those two deployments VF-92 changed to the more colourful yellow tailfin. To be built from the Hasegawa "Liberty Bell" boxing using Eduard cockpit etch, Eduard resin wheels and Microscale decals (which incorrectly show a yellow rather than white rudder): This particular airframe had another lease of life from 1984 to 1991 as ZE362 "V" of 74 Squadron - I still have an Academy F-4J to be built at some point in the future which will be finished as that version.

I´ve read elsewhere that Micro Scale decals tend to break because of how thin they´re, but if the ones I tested (spares from the sheet) didn´t do that, then it´s safe to assume the main (bigger) ones won´t break apart, right? The decals I´ve bought from Repliscale are Yoxford Boys 5 in 1:48 for the Monogram/Hasegawa P-51D.
