Well, we all have heard about the demise of Johnson's Klear by now, so let's look forward instead of back!

How about those who have discovered current products almost identical just listing them on this thread.

Don't want to hear about the EBay Klear racketeers, just what is new and available and from where please.

some UK suggestions: 
-pledge multisurface polish

-Astonish... they've shuffled their brands recently, and I've not tried the recent bottling of wood floor polish.

-Halloway house quick shine multi purpose floor finish. Lakeland sell it, somewhat expensive.

Bottles also available on Amazon.

 

To add to the list

Alclad Aqua Gloss 

 

I know it's actually sold as a paint so for the purists is not a true alternative.... but it works the same as Klear etc. comes in a decent size and gives a better result in my opinion.

Aussies & Kiwis can use Pascoes Long Life Self Shining Floor polish available at Bunnings & a host of other places in Aus if google is to be believed.

Steve.

Never tried it yourself going by what you said?

 

I may tried it just for giggles, however I have never used Future/Klear so I wouldn't be able to compare really

Yes have, as referred to here. Just not incorporated into the original thread, need to do so, totally happy with how it went, as is @Marcello Rosa above.

It is quite instructive to read the rest 0f @CamberrySauce's thread for more info on the Pascoes SSFP.

Looking at the questions in the threads, one of the most common is whether you can use it to dip canopies. The answer, for me, is an unequivocal “yes”. I have used Pascoe in my latest builds. If you check in my web site (address in the signature panel) the images of the 1/48 Tomcat, Skyhawk and Tornado, these are examples. Compare with earlier builds (e.g Super Etendard and Panther) to see the improvement.

 

also: Pascoe mixes well with Tamiya clear acrylics to create canopy “shades”. I have used this in the Tomcat and 1/72 Neptune (green and blue respectively).
