Tim,

I didn't deliberately leave ProCreate out. There are a lot of fillers and putties on the market and we were trying to give an overview of the major types. ProCreate is a two-part epoxy putty like Apoxie Sculpt or Green Stuff.

Cheer, Aaron

That Deluxe Materials Perfect Plastic Putty stuff looks really cool. I've never been able to fill seams in my models and it has been a source of frustration for me in creating really nice models. I look forward to the sanding video because I would sand off details such as rivets when I did use Squadron's green putty, plus I used sand paper, not a stick.
