    Does anyone know if there's a product with strength like epoxy, but takes longer to dry? I often can't work it into the space I need to fill before its too dry.

    I've heard of this stuff but I've always been a li'l hesitant on it. I'll have to consider it for my next project, since I've already blown through most of my budget for the current project. :eek:

    what type have you been using so far? you can also use bondo icing for some things but it sets up fast to. and can be flaky if not coated with super glue

    Don't confuse Apoxie Sculpt with Fixit Sculpt. Fixit is way stronger than the other.

    I've just been using regular epoxy putty- the gray stuff. I got it at Walmart. I mainly use it to fill gaps, but it hardens so quick that I don't always have time to remove excess from the hard to sand-places.

    I use ProCreate (I get it from my local comic/hobby store). It works great and allows plenty of time to fix and touch up any messes. It's a two-part putty that you mix to your desire (if you want it to harden faster, you can mix it to do just that. It comes with a small guide showing what the various mixing amounts can do and how to store it to achieve what you're looking for.

    Check it out here: ProCreate Putty
