Im building a 7mm NG loco and at the undercoat stage and have discovered 1/2 hairline gaps that need filling, what filler would you suggest that is fine enough for such small gaps.
Thanks.

Roy,
    In that case i would opt for Milliput, or, melt some plastic in a solution of liquid glue the sort you may of used to weld/stick your model together with, and, when you have the consistency as you want, paint a little thin layer over the area to be repaired; thin coats only and very fine wet or dry paper to achieve the final smooth finish**, the milliput you would do the same, sparingly and keep the product air tight as it WILL harden off quickly!!!........

                 I hope these two options help you out,         my regards and best.................Tom...:);-):cool:

PS......**I take as read you understand, the brush you use will be wasted for much else, BUT, clean out in solvent, OR, some liquid glue to soften up to apply more liquid plastic solution as and when needed**..............tff.
