Since then, I've learned how to airbrush Future. It's all in the pressure, temp and thickness of the coat. I shoot at 12-15psi, in a warmer environment (74-75 deg F) and mist the first cote...let it dry for about 30 min. and then repeat...it usually takes about 4 times before it's glass smooth.
As for the pebbly finish, you were shooting at too high a pressure and it was drying between the airbrush and your model.
I got this tip and tried it...lightly airbrush the surface with amonia based windex, one section at a time and let each section dry overnight. When I say lightly, I mean extremely lightly. It smoothed out the surface. I'd practice on a garbage kit first.
I use a gravity feed airbrush at about 15 psi, and barely pull back on the trigger. I try to produce the lightest mist I can.
Considering that Future is self leveling, I don't have an answer.
Perhaps it is due to the virgin who warms the future between her soft thighs that is the answer.
I don't know other than I find it to be a forgiving.
There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.
Ive realized that most people ... tend not to be direct when they feel something is shoddy because they want to be liked, "which is actually a vain trait".

...that helps when the humidity is low. I also add a few drops of dish washing liquid that helps break the surface tension. I have found the best time to spray it is when it is raining. High humidity is your friend when spraying Future.
Another thought, (hopefully not further clouding the issue), you might try spraying another coat of Future thinned 50% with rubbing alcohol. It will be fairly thin when you spray it and could easily pool if you don't keep the airbrush moving. Like Modeldad said, it is self-leveling and may reduce the pebble effect filling in the lower parts of the pebble texture.
For what it is worth, I have also lightly wet sanded a Future coat and found that it smoothed out enough to be less noticable under another sprayed coat of thinned Future. Just be conservative with how much you sand so you do not damage the color coat.
I hope your efforts work out to your satisfaction,
