Yes sir, I have it and have used it many times. I like it for filling small gaps either in figures or models. it is a smoother type putty that works well with a wet finger. It dries relatively fast if you don't slop it on. it is a good product with many uses however for models or heavier construction I like the green putty from squadron the best.

Sorry - last night I meant to complete my thought(s) but got sidetracked.

My comment related to models or heavier construction, was realy geared towards plastic models that may have larger type gaps when constructing. I cannot say that this product would not work for that application I can only say that I have not attempted to use it as such.

I have used it for 18mm figures/horses, 1/72 figures/horses, 1/72 tanks, 1/35 hard plastic figures, Hat 54mm medium plastic figures and have had no problems.

I have it in use. Per dries quickly and is too dense. I do not recommend.

Thank you for the input gentlemen! :thumbup:

I was planning to use it for those Art of Tactic figures from Zvezda. Sometimes the arms don't fit well. ;-)

Hi Peter... Will you let us know the result if you will try it? I have a lot of Zvezda figures (big sets) with separate arms.
