Hi!

Some might use Tamiya one compound filler. A cheaper alternative is Sikkens Kombi Filler. It seem to be the very same stuff, as it attachs to the plastic in the same way, and dries as fast. Only that Sikkens is red, versus Tamiyas grey.
The tube I have are 200 grams, and it doesn't cost much more then the Tamiya tube.
I guess other companies delivering autopaints, also makes one coumpound fillers. Check them out, if You not are betweene those always using two compound.

I'm one of those builders who not paint the body before I have managed to fit everything proparly. Still it is the body I begin sanding, and where needed adding filler too, first in a project. This way it sets proparly, not having that risk for shrinkage, before I finally add primer, and paint.
