"Future Polish" The modeler makers friend!

Here is a link to a fantastic article by Matt Swan. Worth reading all the way through and is loaded with super helpful tips. Can't find this floor polish where you live? Mark lists the brand names under which the polish is sold in dozens of countries.

Another super great trick with Future: If you want any finished project to have a "wet look" a super glossy finish; add a few drops of Simple Green cleaner to the future (air brush application is always best, but it can be brushed on or dipped). Just as soon as the finish is applied, the project needs to be covered and protected from dust. I cover my projects with a large clear glass bowl placed upside down over the model. Dust is attracted to this wet look finish and covering it straight away is a must.

I used this trick on some models I had painted gold and the result was like polished gold plated models.
