Hey everybody! Still remember photos of a [SARCASM] stellar [/SARCASM] fit of wings to the fuselage on this build? If not, click HERE. Well here I am at the moment – the model in primer. A few touch-ups will be required so if all goes according to plan, she’ll get a nice even coat of Alclad Gloss Black base and metallic finish sometime later this week. I have to admit, I was struggling with putties in the past – they crumbled, sanding was messy, especially in some tight corner and all in all they were quite a horrifying experience. Well, I have to say, I have found a new one and it blew me away with its quality and ease of work.

The product is called Perfect Plastic Putty by Deluxe Materials. It is a water based putty of a similar thickness as Tamiya’s white putty. But the real game changer is that it is water based. In practice this means, that you apply it over the seam, wait half an hour or so to fully dry, then gently rub the seam with damp brush and you will remove excess putty with ease and any residue can be later removed by damp cloth. I will probably make a product review with a video in the near future, to show you how easy it is to use. Oh and yeah, if you let it cure it will sand very nicely as well.
