I have a question, how do you use crazy glue and backing soda? do you mix it then put it on? I have never heard of that method

i've used tamiya putty, and the super glue/baking soda. You fill the gap with the glue first, then sprinkle the baking soda over it. it sets pretty quickly and very hard.

On the super glue (CA glue) and baking soda - don't let the work cure for too long (meaning, weeks, months, years) as it becomes hard as glass and difficult to sand.

Yeah, I'm still in awe over those that can get that mix to work. Another filler that I use is micro-balloons mixed into 30 minute epoxy.

That's when your Dremel comes in real handy.

for very little cracks or hedge of 2 parts together [like the white freightliner] you can take thinner and from the sprue,s cut little pieces of plastic put it in a

glas whit a lid on it closed and after 1 day you have a kind of pasta

whit a brush you fil the line the thinner vaporis and the plastic is melt between the parts

sanding etc it works [looks like a kind of welding] only for little work no big holes ore gaps

I usually fill the low spot in with baking powder, then apply a CA-type "superglue" over the top, but I only use that for deeper areas where I want a very solid base. I also try to leave the filled area just slightly lower than the surrounding area, then skim over it with a two-part body filler (Evercoat's Eurosoft is my choice), sand, then prime with a filler primer.

My favorite is Squadron white putty. For small cracks, I use straight crazy glue.

Not spraying it ,but I've used it by brushing it on and sanding after a few days of curing.

.....Casey, you use baking powder, or soda? lf powder, how does the consistency differ from soda?
