Turbo Tacky gone missing?

Haven't been able to find Turbo Tacky for over a year. Thankfully, the regular Tacky Glue seems to work just fine for most projects.

Just bought a bottle of Turbo Tacky three days ago at the local Wal mart here in Kenai. New style text.

Might want to ask at your local store if they still stock it.

Should we be using Acid Free Tacky Glue so our paper models will last forever?

I have been using Beacon Multi-Grip.

It has a lot of good properties, it is moderately tacky, has a usable working time before setting up, does not smear ink jet printer inks, the excess can be rubbed off without causing a lot of damage to the paper. It can be thinned to desired viscosity with nail polish remover or acetone.

Available at hardware stores and craft stores.

John the Acid Free would be good if you're using acid-free paper such as fine arts and watercolor papers. Otherwise the acid content of most standard wood pulp based papers and cards will just eat up the glue along with the paper.

I'm sorry, or maybe not, but I'm totally distracted from glues, my brain is pondering what the plot would be for a novel with a protagonist named Max Tacky.

I'd like to think that centuries after the lignin paper has turned to dust, a ghostly outline of the model formed by the acid free glue would still exist.

As opposed to Tacky Max, who just can't seem to coordinate colors...
