There was a thread a couple of months ago regarding filler, can't find the thread now but...Red Devil One Time was recommended, so I got some off t'internet.

I finally used it on my Dynam Spit rebuild last night. Top recommendation, this stuff is superb. So light it feels like the tub is empty. It has the consistency of mousse, spreads so easy, if you use it carefully you really do not need to sand! I don't need any more just at the moment, but I am going to get some anyway, best filler I have ever used.

By the way 'Bounce' filler got a good review in the mag, so I bought a tub.....and threw it away after 4 or 5 totally failed attempts to repair a dink in a foam wing, the stuff just fell off, sorry but I was as unimpressed as you can get!

Give Red Devil a try.

Been using it for years here Steve, good stuff.

And if you mix coffee powder in with it carefully, you can match the colour with balsa. It then doesn't show through lighter coloured covering films.......

Mellow Birds is what I used Stevo. It seems a very fine powder, so it mixes well....... just don't add too much at once. Build up the shade slowly.

I suppose you could drink it while you built the model too, which could be a bonus.

I bought some lightweight filler from Wilko's a couple of weeks ago. It's an own brand product and I haven't used it in anger yet but it's a big 600ml tub for about £3 (I think, but not very expensive anyway).

Sometimes the mix can go a bit stiff if it isn't used for while Geoff, but these fillers are usually water based, so a squirt of water mixed in normally restores the creaminess of the mix.

No I said great filler...not great filter, that's drinky stuff with milk and sugar, sometimes this site makes me wonder what it really is all about!
