I must have spent months in total in Beatties model shops.

Defunct 2001?

So at least 19 years – how much/little modelling do you do!

I suppose  in the circumstances the advice to buy a litre bottle of Methyl Ethyl Ketone for about £10 is somewhat pointless?

It’s the active ingredient in many/most? liquid poly cements – sometimes known as Butanone and is sold under various brand names containing MEK for modellers for anything from about £4 to £10 for 100ml – quite a mark up. But as you say most people aren’t using it in huge quantities.

You could buy a litre and bequeath it to your grandchildren?
