This is my 1st foil finish. I learned a lot and plan on trying this foiling again. I read the article posted here by Mr. Friend about foiling and found his advice great and his tech. sound. I also found if you use micro foil glue diluted with 70% alcohol it really helps the glue flow better and when you make a flubb-up which you will!!!! it helps the glue release better. I used the Eduard kit which fits great and has hard plastic just right for polishing. I cut the vertical stab. filet away and changed a few panels and gun ports etc. The best advice I have concerning foiling is DO NOT USE A PRIMER BASE because all the rubbing, gluing and such it will cause the base coat to release from the plastic making your finish suffer. Hope you like it so far.
