Gramps, If you are in a pinch, Squadron white works pretty well. Take your time and more than one filling after sanding. I have had good luck with it at times. Another good one I like is Evercoat ultra-smooth finishing putty. Most auto parts stores keep it. There was another Evercoat putty called Euro-Cream Coat but I have not seen any in years so not sure its still made. I felt it was just about the best. Take your time and do a lot of block sanding and you will get there! Good Luck.
Ordinarily I am insane, but I do have lucid moments where I am merely stupid.
ANY problem race car can be cured with a pound of C 4, Detonator and a 12 volt battery.
Your drivers attitude will improve if you have the correct load in your Mossberg.

...I use the squadron putty as well and I also use the Bondo glazing and spot putty (#907) that comes in a tube that's available at your local auto parts store.....the #801 tube of Bondo glazing and spot putty will work also , but I prefer to use it on larger imperfections where as the 907 works better with smaller scratches.

When I cut bodies or do any major modifications which require strength in that area for sanding I use acrylic fingernail filler. It is located in the cosmetic section at Wallyworld or can be bought at any beauty supply place, such as Sally's Beauty Supplies. It requires good ventilation because it is rather strongly odored and the fumes are similar to MEK or Toulene. It dries rather quickly and is extremely hard so it requires quite a bit of effort to sand; however the joint is super strong, will not crack during sanding, and it does come out really smooth. One other quirk with this stuff, it does not work well in a dehydrator - it will bubble up.
I build models because GOD allows me to and because I can't afford the real thing!!

I like to use actual body filler.
Lately I've been using Dolphin Glaze by UPOL.
Available at local body shop/paint suppliers.
It was only $12 with hardener.
Lightweight polyester filler. Will not shrink like other fillers and sands really clean.
