I've been using testers gloss cote (and dull cote) since Gary suggested I get it, but I've run out
I have had no issues at all so prob no point changing unless anyone has something amazing I can use instead...?
In saying that, I can't remember where I got it from, can anyone point me in the right direction?

You could try Constellation Hobbies, he might have some as he stocks testors stuff. Might pay to call though, as I don't think the website works....
Could use the Tamiya X-22 and Lacquer thinner for an alternative?

Just noticed on MA that it's a lacquer, I've been using tamiya acrylic thinners as I thought it was an acrylic lol. Clearly this doesn't really matter as it's seems to have worked ok...
