    I use Mighty Putty. I know that Michael's carries it in the U.S.

    I use tamiya light curing putty. Cures under sunlight or fluorescent light in under a minute. Very easy to sand and with that curing time you can keep working on the custom instead of having to wait hours for the compound to cure. I don't recommend it on big holes though.

    Thanks guys, took a look at those and for the small cracks and gaps I think I need more of a past to get in the crevasses . Unfortunately all we have is a hobby lobby so I don't have access to some of those suggested. Do u think wood filler wood work??

    This thread has been languishing for awhile, but I have the same question. I'm interested in a paste that I can squeeze in to fill the gaps between a styrene tube and the strips I use to contain it. I've noticed mention of Fusor 114. Any other good options?

    I found Tamiya white putty at a Hobby lobby.It works well.You will have to sand down the excess putty after it dries.
