      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Tamiya Filler/Sikkens Kombi Filler

1 post in this topic

Posted

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.
