    I've been hearing for ages about how fantastic Future Floor Wax is as a clearcoat for modelling - but it's always been from Americans. I've never seen Future here in the UK at all.

    So I did a bit of searching, to find out if it was available in this country, and if so, where I could get it. I stumbled upon this interesting page, which tells a great deal about the product, including the fact that it's actually sold under many different names around the world. It turns out it's produced by SC Johnson, and in the UK, it's marketed as "Klear". The page also lists other international names for it.

    I've still never seen Klear in shops before (and my searching has mentioned unconfirmed reports that it may be discontinued, but I'm not sure about that), but I've managed to order myself a bottle so I can try out this modelling miracle! :D

    Maybe it's just the Pittsburgh area, but Future is really hard to come by. I finally found a bottle at Kmart - and it was the last one.
