Amazon have it (I really should seek help for my Amazon obsession  ;D), so if the local stuff doesn't work, you could try there.

I did once try Tacky Glue to attach figures to painting bases. Sadly, that refused to come off the base without taking a knife to it, and the base is still sticky, many months after the event. I used Tacky Glue recently to attach a large sheet of plasticard to a wooden base, where I thought PVA probably wouldn't hold. It worked very well - but not for painting bases  ::)

Don't get me started. I've made several trees using Woodland Scenics material : armatures, flocking and, yes, their tacky glue.
More than a year later (could even be 2 years) they're still sticky...  :-[
real messy stuff.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I'm hearing you, that's why I don't use tacky glue.
