What all is out there for putty or filler that you can sand? I have some small things I need done which bondo would be overkill on…

Miiliput is pretty good.

<smacks forehead> How the heck did I forget about Milliput?!?!?!
Thank you for that memory jog!

Besides Milliput, I also use superglue cured with an accelerator (it remains "soft" for a bit & thus easier to sand) or just regular epoxy too.

I use a dermal with a sanding wheel to file down my bases. The shavings are saved and sprinkled on super glued joints and can be sanded just like the original metal.

Don't forget Squadron Green Stuff as well. I believe GW/Citadel sells a pot-sized container of liquid green stuff.

Vallejo Plastic Putty. Easier to use than an epoxy. Get the tube, not the squeeze bottle.
