Re: Bonds Professional Glazing putty- Not two part!
The glazing putty is not a two part; you use it directly from the tube. It is red and sticks to both plastic and resin. This works well as a seam filler and smoothing agent. Feather with a wet finger.
Regular Bondo Body Filler is 2 part and you need a hardening agent. As Ed said, great for larger areas and modifications.
Available from almost any auto supply store. This is a two part mix, squeeze a quarter-sized dab on a piece of cardboard and a pea-sized spot of hardener alongside. Mix together. The more hardener you use the quicker it hardens, use less for a slower set. Work in small batches.
It can be used to build up surface levels, it does not shrink. It sands and feathers beautifully.
Large applications do not melt underlying plastic like solvent putties might.
Best thing about itís quick hardening property is that that it hardens in minutes allowing you to keep working instead of waiting hours or overnight for the putty to harden
It depends where you live. If you live in the US, try Apoxie-Sculpt for resin and Deluxe Plastic Putty for styrene, you should be able to get them through Amazon. If you live in the UK, Sylmasta sell a good resin putty too.
You can sand the Apoxie-Sculpt and the Sylmasta resin putties when they have cured, and you can smooth them with a wet finger for about 10-20 minutes after application and before they have cured.
I've never been keen on Milliput or the Squadron fillers (if you can still but them), but have used the Apoxie, Deluxe, and Sylmasta putties.
I have a similar question to the 'glue' one. I need putty recommendations for both Resin and Styrene use. My requirements will be for 1/700th kits and 1/160 n-scale stuff so the areas to be filled will be relatively small. TIA
