    I think you may find the stuff they produce now in europe has been changed in formula, if your using it for painting and spraying.

    I'm guessing in the USA its still good, as there not getting stuffed by the EU rules, lol.

    Yep, I think Klear was just recently reformulated. But good news, I just saw a magazine comparison last week and despite looking different (cloudy now, with a brownish tinge) and smelling different it appears not to affect how it works.

    Several colleagues modelers have tried the "alternative", but none matches the original "Future".
    The various "clones" can be found in this lik: THE COMPLETE FUTURE WAX

    I hope that my additions to the original formula; It has a total transparency.
    I do not know if it's only a rumor, but on the forum say: "new "washings" of Games Workshops include a good percentage of Future Wax!"...

    I'm curious to try to paint the transparency, but also as an alternative to oil paints for the aging of military.

    ...hoping it does not block the customs as "substance suspected terrorist ..."

    The product has arrived.
    I have not had problems with customs because it was shipped in bottles compatible air transport ... but ... There is always a "but" ...
    "With hindsight" I had to order more; actually a bottle of 100 cc is an understatement.
    I'll start experimenting with the operation.

    If you could get hold of more, let me know how and what :-)

    thanks

    The above link lists what the product is called in many countries and the shops that stock them.
    I am not sure if the article goes into the Aussie Pledge containing ammonia but for those who use this keep it in mind due to the effect it can have on acrylics.

    Unfortunately I don't think it includes Italy ... but it does have the Netherlands.

    edit: I have an article in Fine Scale Modeller ( I think) that lists it's availability by country so I will repost if and when I find it and it has info on Itay.

    If you are having problems getting Future Floor polish and you want to do 'washes' or make paint transparent, then I can highly recommend Vallejo Glaze medium. It works a treat. It turns paint into a wash, plus it also delays the drying time, thus allowing you to do some nice blending Being a dropper bottle, you can also choose how transparent you want to make your 'wash'.

    Hope that helps

    Yeah unfortunately the bills have to be paid and working up to 18.5 hours a day is not conducive to sitting infront of a PC for hours. Sometimes my speed reading involves too much speed..... but thankfully I aint losing sleep over it.

    Becareful with Future... If your models sit in sunlight they will get a yellow tinge.
