  1. Dear Forum Members, How do you compare Alclad paints to AK xtreme metal and true metal series in all possible aspects? Thank you, Kartal
  2. Perhaps some of you have been here before. After uncounted hours of eye straining labor you get that project through the paint shop only to find that when the mask is pulled off of the canopy, there is a haze at places on the inside. It's not the end of the world if the canopy can be removed and cleaned, and then reinstalled. My problem is that this is not possible on my current build (High Planes "Precious Metal") where the teardrop canopy has been blended into the airframe with 5-minute epoxy and jet glue. After removing the Bare Metal Foil I'm left with what can best be desribed as patches of white inside the canopy which resembles fog. I think it is a nearly microscopic dust which statically attached to the canopy either when the BMF is being burnished onto the canopy or when it is removed. So the question is, how to get rid of it when I absolutely cannot remove the canopy? Is there a way to get rid of the static charge which is holding the dust there?
