Perfect Plastic Putty

Post by AndyR » Sun May 01, 2016 6:05 pm

Hi Folks,

Just thought I would post a note on Perfect Plastic Putty.

I don't know how long this stuff has been on the market, but having run out of squadron putty I had to buy what was in the model shop.

This is it:-

I'm very impressed, it sands wonderfully, it seems to like paint, only thing is I'm unsure to how much it tolerates water.

However, the cynic in me wonders if this is pollyfilla in a smaller hobby sized packet..........thoughts?

Cheers
Andy

I use the Humbrol plastic filler as it is pretty general purpose.
Also, when mixed with Liquid Poly makes Mr Surfacer.

Hi all,

Yes agree the comment on milliwatt for welds.

I just use the plastic putty for gap filling, I like it as it seems to fill largish gaps with out cracking, and appears at the moment to be fairly easy to sand back.

Cheers
