    No it did not leave any residue when I removed it to try my second attempt. It's almost to the point that you feel there isn't even any tackiness to it, but you you touch it with your finger, but for some reason applies easily.


    I have read about some modelers using clear coat after they have applied it to their car models. I personally have not tried.

    I have applied Future over BMF with an airbrush with excellent results. That BB I referenced in the earlier post was clear coated with Future.

    Thanks for posting the link! I just ordered a sheet. It cost $6.75 for the sheet and $6.25 for the cheapest shipping. I tried different amounts and you can get up to 10 sheets without the shipping price going up. If all goes well with this first sheet, I'll plan on ordering 10 next time...
