    I've used Future Floor Polish (as have most of you) to gloss clearoat my customs. I'd never used it on white before, though, and upon its application to my reapinted Alt Ratchet I discovered:

    It dries to a slightly yellowish color!

    Has anyone else experienced this? I just got the paint perfect; how can I fix?

    Sure it's not the paint itself that yellowed? Yellowing Future is almost unheard of. What paint did you use it on?

    It's on Testor's Model Master spray gloss white.

    It only yellowed on parts to which the Future Polish was applied. Non-clearcoat parts remain brilliant.

    According to this link:

    The Complete Future


    "There have been a few reports by modelers that yellowing has occured with all white finishes. I have investigated several of these reports of yellowing and have found in each and every one that it was the underlying paint that had yellowed and not the Future. White paint contains a resin pigment that will yellow under long-term exposure to direct sunlight and there is no clear coat that I am aware of that will prevent this occurrence. "

    I hope this helps.

    Hm. That's odd... my workspace is in the laundry room... there aren't even any windows. NTM, how does that address the non-yellowing of the parts to which FF hadn't been applied? :-/
