sandable filler

I'm doing some work on an obechi wing w/ a balsa leading edge, and I
have some little depressions at the seam I'd like to fill.

Normally I mix epoxy and microballoons to fill a gap, but I don't want
to sand epoxy smooth or run an iron over it when I finish the wing.

Any better solutions? I was considering spackle filler and white glue,
but that sounds low tech - what else is there?

Thanks,
Brent

Re: sandable filler

Light weight spackle from Lowes or Home Depot. When done and sanded put some
medium CA on and spread over the area. Sand again till smooth. Works really
well.
