"Perfect Plastic" putty by Deluxe is some of the best putty I have ever used.

https://www.amazon.com/DELUXE-MATERIALS-BD44-Perfect-Plastic/dp/B0076LAVFK

It flows pretty well and sands very nice.

Nothing but just "AWESOME"  !

Hello to all

 Thought I would post a small update, Engines are coming along, waiting on some small parts, So I turned my attention
to the big sensors. I got the first coat of paint on them, Mr Color Super White and International Orange. It took a lot
of work just to get them to this point, The conversion takes a lot of TLC. I know they are not perfect but it is the best
I can do. I should get them together and decaled this weekend maybe ! I am a slow builder. I am also working on the
lighting, and drawing out the plan. I should post another update next weekend.


Bye for now !

For larger gaps, I would recommend plopping down bits of styrene (like Evergreen styrene) and then add putty around the now smaller gaps, instead of trying to fill a big cavity with putty, which probably will sink, requiring one or more additional pass.

For example with Vallejo putty, eventually, once you allow the first layer to dry properly, you can add more putty and even build up a shape if you are careful.

Styrene works with "regular" liquid glue. I recommend 'Tamiya Extra Thin Cement'. Note: add this liquid glue outside on the seams on top, after gently pressing two parts together (the liquid glue will be soaked into the seams automatically). Once dry, gently go over with a sanding stick and maybe a polish stick. Excess liquid glue will evaporate. Don't smear liquid glue on clear parts, and try avoid having liquid glue flow down your thumb, which might leave a subtle fingerprint if that happens. This way, you don't have to work with glue the old way, where one would add glue goo on the inside of parts, usually leading to stress and some mess.

Vallejo has water based putty, which is much less obnoxious to work with, compared to some presumably toxic Tamiya putty stuff.

The imo best Vallejo putty product, is not the putty found in the regular "paint bottles" (tends to be tricky to use, and the tip can dry), but product number '70.401'. This is the one that comes in a 20 ml tube and with a nice thinned tip applicator. Works great! This putty is best sanded with medium coarse sanding files, and then fine grade sanding files, else you'll spent too much time sanding if only using some kind of 'fine' grade sanding file.

Thank you.  I'll pick some up and give it a try.

Thanks for the responses.  I have watched a few videos on seem work and am ready to try it.  But I am curious what type of putty you use for seems and gaps.

Lovely! :) Don't forget that, if your model takes damage sometime later by accident, your model will live on in the photos. So I would take a lot of photos.

Fun part about taking photos, if trying to find "epic" angles that makes the model look the most interesting.

I'll second that. These latest shots are stunning. Keep 'em coming!

I am sure I saw the pix somewhere. Do you have a blog by chance?

No, sorry. My only postings appeared here and on HyperScale. Again with the ambition (or lack thereof) thing...
