Hi to all,

I have now commenced putting this together and as you can see will need some filler. Can anyone advise best/easiest to get please.

Can I also congratulate you all on the RAF 100 builds so far they all look fantastic and put my little effort to shame. Some real skills being shown that hopefully I will gradually gain as time goes on.

Thanks for looking, Nick T.

My go-to filler is Perfect Plastic Putty **LINK** Not the cheapest - but the best I have found to date!

Hi Nick,

Don’t put yourself down, we all had to start somewhere and your build looks fine in my eyes too.thumbs up

I tend to use Vallejo plastic putty for small seams and holes and Mr. Hobby for the larger fillings, it just a matter of one’s preference.

Oh and for attaching canopy’s the best glue IMHO is PVA, it doesn’t fog up the clear parts and any glue stains are not easily seen.wink 2

Looking forward to see your progress on this interesting variant of the Spitfire.

Don't think I've said hello before, so welcome to MilMod.

A nice start and as the lads have said, don't talk yourself down, just enjoy what your doingthumbs up. Good to see an unusual variant as well.

Just to let you know as well I've moved the thread from General Modelling to Group Builds and edited the title to include the GB search term (RAF100GB). That way the thread will get picked up in GB searches far more easily. Don't worry about twin postings either. It often happens dependant on machine connection speed or mouse sensitivity; my record is six identical posts! I've deleted the other thread for you.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing this develop.face 23
