EPO foam filler?

Hey Guys,

Got a question for you all. I have a Flyzone Fw190, that has a few dents that won't come out with the hot water trick. What is the best filler material for the foam? Micro Ballons? I was thinking something like the premixed spackle (assuming I could get it to "bite" to the foam). Any ideas?


Thanks,

Lightweight "acrylic" spackle is what I use, but i would lightly sand the area with 320 before applying. I put elmers wood putty on top after it dries (and sanded smooth) as it finsihes better than the raw spackle.

You're very welcome, but I don't want to be "sir" until I start collecting Social Security..... and That is at LEAST 12 years away!
