The new Humbrol Clear varnish…..Wow!

I took the plunge and using a flat paint brush I’ve applied the first coat of Humbrol Clear on the Starfighter and it is VERY smooth, no brush marks whatsoever. I can safely say it is an excellent replacement for Johnsons Kleer AND being water soluble you can clean brushes and airbrushes a lot easier, rather than use ammonia or something equally toxic.

I think another coat will do the trick very nicely and I shall use it for the decals too. Johnsons Kleer is great for bedding down decals but decal setting solutions like Micro-Sol have caused a reaction with Kleer so it will be interesting to see what happens with the Humbrol stuff. Stay tuned folks :o)

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
