Hi Chris,

Sorry, I didn't realise you were asking which ruins.

I'm referring to the Great Zimbabwe ruins. I hope to post some pictures in the near future.

Regards

Herbert

Hi Gentlemen!

Have anyone tried to dilute modelling putty? Is there a way to do this?

Any putty can be diluted, once you know what the makeup of it is.

I'm not 100% sure about the ones in the photo, but I think they thin with liquid poly cement.
The ones I use thin with cellulose thinners, and plain water with the acrylic putties like Deluxe Materials Perfect Plastic Putty

Hi Maher.
You could try acetone or nail varnish remover maybe.But liquid glues good.Humbrol or Tamiya maybe.

I use Tamyia extra thin to thin my filler of choice squadron green, I also paint down the filled joint with the glue to smooth the joint. Only advisable on large pieces so as not to melt the part. Then leave for a few hours before cutting or smoothing.
