Question

I keep meaning to try this stuff out but SC Johnson seems to love changing the name and possibly the recipe of this stuff at regular intervals. I've also heard the stuff that works as a modelling aid (for me it would mostly be to gloss areas to apply transfers to) is only available in the US these days but I am hoping that's not the case. I believe this is the current packaging that works for US modellers:

https://www.amazon.de/JOHNSON-WAX-Floor-Care-27-oz/dp/B000ARPH4C

Note the €42 delivery charge from the US and then probably customs on top. Thanks but no thanks Amazon. It's not available in Germany at all it seems but if it's available in Ireland I could pick some up on a visit.

Cheers for any info.

Some of what I have left in the stash of the original stuff

BTW Johnson Clear hates Decal softeners...has a reaction and a white residue appears when applied

I've ordered a bottle of this stuff from the Netherlands. I think it might be the same. That's what it's called in the US these days anyway:

Definitely worth a try, you might be lucky.

But, the same trade name may mean different things in different countries - e.g. -

Durex Cellulose Tape Empty Metal Tin Canadian | Etsy Ireland

Although, I suppose you could use it in a DIY emergency construction mode..?

I was hoping to pick up the "current version of Klear" because it's cheap really, rather than buying a product specifically made for modelling to be honest.

George I'm not sure the stuff I've ordered will be the same. I suspect it might be an "EU version", milky in consistency to discourage accidental ingestion. Might still be worth a try though as it should turn clear in use as it's supposed to be a clear gloss floor polish too, not leave some milky sheen.

Darius thanks for the video. I had already watched it earlier today in fact. The guy said it's not available in the UK and he had to buy it from the US.

I've also now come across another product by a company called Erdal, however their product was also discontinued and replaced by "something siomilar" though I have found some forum posts where the new stuff is being used too without any complaints and some say it even doesn't react with decal softeners:

It's in German but google will translate it for you I guess.

Allegedly it's now in a yellow bottle and the manufacturer is called Emsal:

I'll probably give this a try too as I can pick it up locally it seems.

Edit: Allegedly the Lidl floor shine is comparable to the SC Johnson products, at least according to some German modelling forums. Costs even less too. It's a seasonal product in Germany it seems, released in late spring and autumn each year. It's not in the regular assortment here. It looks like this outside Germany:
