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)
