  1. Hi folks, I don't know about anyone else, but one of the things I really LOVE about modelling is putting hours and hours into making a project look the best it can be, then finding new and creative ways to ruin it in seconds. I've been preparing Monogram's gigantic 1/48 B-29 for a high gloss Alclad base. Here was the plan: Alclad Grey primer base spray coat of Halfords Satin Black coat of Alclad Honey Primer or Klear Gloss acrylic black finish coat of Klear Alclad high gloss paint finish. I've used this technique for all my previous high gloss finishes which have been spectacularly successful up to now: BUT this time: Step one went well... Step 2 went patchy: Some of the Halfords sprayed areas went like this: I've tried sanding back and respraying - same result, but only on those patches. I continued the full treatment steps 4-6 above, and the texture still shows through, ven though under the light it is completely smooth. I even polished the entire model with compound and applied the Klear coat, it still looks rough. I don't know what Alclad will look like over that surface. Anyone got any idea what I've done or not done, and why it won't go away? Cheers, Al.
