    What is a good putty to use on TFs?
    I would use sculpty, but I'm afraid of tossing a custom TF is the oven at 275 degrees.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Aves Apoxie Scuplt is great, but available only online I believe.

    You can use Billy Mays approved Mighty Putty as well!

    This. You can get it in target. It's works well, but read the intructions.

    big hank is on the money with this. Haven't used either, but I know people that have and they've had success with both. I think Mighty Putty is better for filling gaps and holes, rather than full-on sculpting, but as I said, I haven't tried it yet.

    I personally use ProCreate Professional Sculptors Putty with mine. It's worked like a charm and it's easily mixed to harden either fast or slow (I usually use 50/50 Hardener/Resin which gives me a good 2 hours total work time before completely hardening--I usually have my putty work done in 10-20 minutes though, depending on what I'm actually working on). Just used it to help reshape the front end on my Universe Jazz custom (used it over some styrene parts to help "smooth" things over and give it a more G1 shape). You can get the general shape you want and sand or cut any excess you may not need.

    Here's a link: ProCreate Professional Sculptors Putty
