    Humbrol model filler is good, but it sells for about £5

    I'm in hospital at mo bud but when I get home I'll tell you the 2 I use. One is a compound filer n goes like chalk when set n is easy to use and shape. The other I use is more of a putty, tricky to use as it's very tacky but once set it becomes a hard plastic, so using it sparingly and carefully is advised. Infact if you go to me DB5 valance topic you'll see this second filler in use.

    Ok k8vnl bud I got 2 links here for you for the 2 fillers I use. The first is Squadron Model Putty, this is the easy one I mentioned. Dries quick, easy to sand and shape and is less messy. The second one is Citadel ( Games Workshop ) Green Stuff. It's a 2 part resin type filler. Once both parts are mixed it can be moulded to any shape but it is hard to work with. Once set though it is solid and seriously strong. The links below are for reference only to let you see the fillers I'm on about if you wanna buy them yourself. The Squadron I can buy for £3 in Boyes the Citadel stuff is dearer and does cost about a fiver, but it is more of a more experienced modellers filler, beginners might find it hard to work with, especially if you not used 2 part fillers before. Anyway buddy hope these help ya. :)

    Thanks for that.Even though I consider myself a good modeller I have never used filler so will be a novice on that one.I nearly finished building the engine for the truck so pictures will follow and it does look good. Embarrased
