hi james
I've been looking on this layout for a while now and i've noticed that you've been progressing quite quickly compared to me. Keep up the good pace! Also a layout is never finished.

Re: Model Filler

I've used the humbrol model filler without any drying out in the tube. I had to you it when i built a plastic house kit wrong :shock: and i had to cut it all apart and fill in the gaps. I also use the model filler as "putty" for my aifix kits when parts come off :x
