Squadron white putty

Recommended Posts

:huh:  What on earth has happened to the filler from Squadron Products?

 

In years gone by I used both green and white offerings, but my stock had become too hard and unusable so I ordered a new tube.  It's now like a liquid plastic and cannot be smoothed or worked with masking tape and acetone.  Can anybody suggest another filler which is workable and sands down nicely?

 

 

:please:

For me, I like Tamiya putty. It’s really fine grain and sands as smooth as glass

 

I have made the mistake of putting to much squadron in one place and have it melt and or deform part of my model.  I haven't had Tamiya do that yet, maybe I am not trying hard enough?  Tamiya has been fantastic in terms of conforming to the model and remaining.  Depending on the contrast of the plastic and the Tamiya putty, an additional light coat of primer may be needed to rid yourself of the seam.  I have been using a diluted Mr Primer Surfacer.    Your mileage may vary......
