Heck, You can put it up on eBay, goes for a pretty Penney. Thanks for the offer but it is time to move onto a new sealer. I think this is the trend for hobbies, there is always talk about model enamels going away since acrylics are being used more and more.

I'm a woodworker and have used Deft Lacquer Sanding Sealer on nose cones and fins. It is a little thinner than you'd want, so it takes more coats. The good news is that a quart was only $11 when I bought it a couple years ago. A Google search looks like it hasn't gone up much, if any. I've meant to put some in a "not well sealed" jar to flash off some of the solvents to make it thicker, and see if that helps.

I use the Deft spray lacquer dope too. It does take more coats, but works.

I have tried it in the past and it did take more coats than Aerogloss.

I have over a GALLON of Aero Gloss Balsa Fillercoat and almost 2 Gallons of their Sanding Sealer as well in various Pint/Half Pint cans. Probably enough for my lifetime. NONE for sale either. I hoard it and grab it off ebay.
I have a collection of colors that rivals most 80's hobby shop Aero Gloss displays.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and NEVER touch the brake !!!
