    Foo here scratchbuilds with plastic?



    ...and can suggest a good plastic putty filler that can be sanded reasonably easy with relatively little attack towards the plastic? This thing has more rough corners and holes to fill then I expected.

    -Kurt

    P.S. Yea, this is my other hobby.

    Excellent. Anything that isn't Squadron putty sounds good to me

    In fact, I was going to look around to see if a cheap spray primer existed that has such imperfection-filling capabilities. I might need it on a second model I'm working on.

    oh, and the difference between bondo pin hole filling putty and tamiya putty is the thickness.
    tamiya you can go over with one coat, but bondo you might have to use a few coats if the peaks and valleys are a bit coarse.

    Nice work cudak!


    It's been a while since I've worked with styrene. You might try stopping by the hobby shop and asking them instead.

    My work with plastics lately has been with acrylics. Here's a few items I've fabricated via cutting and heat bending.

    Back panel and handle for a PC mod.




    Another PC with acrylic hooves for feet and a clear power supply mod.




    A wizard's wand for my daughter's halloween costume.

    wb, that stuff looks awfully familiar from the stuff I've seen on mod sites

    sled, that red stuff is probably the same thing as the bondo pin hole filler, come to think of it, I think it's actually called bondo spot filler.

    i would try and sell him on that cause that stuff sands easy and dries pretty fast however it does work better when layered the whole rear section of the car is spot filler on top of styrene. but for 5$ you get a lot compared to the 6$+ tamiya stuff

    Unfortunately most of my reviews were limited to cases and accessories. Those with more seniority than myself got all the core hardware. It was just as well...I never was into playing the power user game. My hardware is a bit dated too.

    Worst spot I have to fill is an edge that didn't come out flush - otherwise, most of the edge fill work I need to is mild stuff around the water tank.

    3M makes such epoxies, specifically for plastics and sandable filler can be added as well. You can find them through Aircraft Spruce Supply.

    That two part stick epoxy that you kneed to activate will also work (used to be sold as PC7), but they are hard.

    Nice train. That's good work.
