Has anyone used Perfect Plastic Putty by Deluxe Materials? http://www.militarymodelling.com/news/article/perfect-plastic-putty/10733/

It looks like a great product that would solve some issues I have had with filler. I'd like to hear from anyone using it before I buy yet another filler that I'm dissapointed with. Thanks!

Just ordered some yesterday, since I was getting sick of the Tamiya\squadron solvent-based putties. Will report back once I've had a chance to try it out. Internet reviews are all quite favorable though...

I mix Zap-A-Gap with baby powder. As thick or thin as you want it. Sands like resin. I've used it to fill radiator openings, glue seams and anything you would want to use putty for.

"3M Professional Glazing & Spot Putty". Get it at auto parts chain stores. 3oz. tube with separate hardner in a bubble pack. About $9. Much cheaper than Evercoat and Rage.
Dries fast, never shrinks, takes Future barrier or primer without ghosting. Sands to a fine edge.
If you squeeze out a quarter-sized dot of the white putty, add a dot of the red hardner about the diameter of half a pencil eraser-yes a VERY SMALL amount. Mix and shoot for a light pink color. The darker you have it, the faster it cures, so keep it very light pink (use less hardner).
Any one-part putty is junk-shrinks and ghosts forever.

being a new product I think it will be surely a great one.

I am an old-inside fellow, and still love too much the old Milliput from Uk :naughty: . its little oldfashion uk package is simply too cool for me, and I've seen miracles happening with him.
here a cool link to many works u can do with it:

The perfect putty for plastic? Cyanoacrylate glue and baking powder! Check out this video:

Well, the stuff (finally) showed up from England yesterday, but modeling has pretty much ground to a halt here lately with temps in the 30's and 40's every day. Comes in a nice package, but a proper review will have to wait until my beer doesn't freeze in the garage.... :)

Thank you for this link. I had heard of using this and filed it away in my brain for safe keeping but never tried it. I tried it last night and I am quite satisfifed with the result so far. Still want to tey the Perfect Palstic Putty sometime though!

I use the superglue/babypowder or kitchen flower technique all the time, but it's quite hard to sand. I don't use the Tamiya and squadron putty anymore, but use 2k polyester putty instead. It doesn't shrink like Tamiya does and works great.

Best regards,
Lesley

We had a bit of a thaw over the weekend, so I was able to give this a try. It's quite easy to apply and shape, yes, even with a wet finger. Dries quickly and sands easily as well. A really nice thing about it is that it's easy to apply over your solvent-based primer. If you use the Squadron or Tamiya putties over solvent-based primers, the putty will melt the primer and just make a mess. Since this is water-based, there's no mess.

Much much easier to use, so a definite recommendation from me thus far...
