Could you forward me the Memo

December 6th, 2017, 1:43 pm #11

As frequently reported here on this forum, Future has changed names several times since it originally appeared. I believe the current name is "Pledge Floor Care Multi-Surface Finish." It's the same stuff.

Search this forum for "Future" to learn more.
I missed it too, can I get a copy?

Better than Future

My supply of the original Future floor polish is almost gone. Interested to hear what the community has been using to dip canopies as a replacement.

Cheers

Alclad's Aqua Gloss clear is similar and I think better. Look herehttps://store.spruebrothers.com/searchr ... ss&Submit=
Anybody that carries Alclad should have this.

Like Mike says............"It's the same stuff."

I started using it in 1986 and was still using it in 2016 when I quit model building due to severe shaky hands.

Caveat on Alclad Aqua Gloss

I have used Alclad Aqua Gloss, and it is OK if you use one coat. The troouble comes when a second coat of Aqua Gloss is applied; a second coat apparently interacts with the first coat, leaving an uneven, lumpy finish. So, I will use Alclad Aqua Gloss if only a single coat is needed. Others may have a different experience, but this has been my observation of the product.

"Memo" was a reference to the many "What is Future called now?" posts.

It is obvious that many Hyperscalers did not "get the memo," i.e., read those posts, as this question comes up again and again. A search on this forum for "Future" will show you what I mean.

I've done multiple coats on multiple kits without issues.
