Tamiya putty and resin...

Yes, I know i could just do a test but i am impatient and my putty is not with me right now.

Just curious: will tamiya basic putty work with resin? or is it only meant to work on plastics? anyone try it on resin?
thanks!

Model resin is plastic so it should work fine. I would roughen up the section where you are going to place it though (a lite sanding should work) so it can get a grip and stick better.

Finally got around to doing a test, looks good. I tried some tamiya putty on a casting block from miniarm. I let it cure overnight and it's now hard as a rock, I scraped it with an exacto blade to see if it would flake off and it doesn't. It will scrape, of course, but seems to be held fast to the resin.

Glad it worked out. So are you going to be using it for zimmerit or for gap filling?

Probably just gap filling for now. I think it may dry to fast to do zimmerit (for me at least)

Should work fine for gap filling. I use Mr Surfacer for smaller gaps and Apoxy Sculpt for big jobs. What ever works, works.
