    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Beautiful craftsman ship as always Earle. Really like the way you suspend the fuse for construction. Umm, by the way...those ailerons? Yeah....impeccable my friend. Sure would like to go to Top Gun myself. Maybe someday....

    Question for those with Bondo 2-part experience.

    On the pics I posted above I used the 2-part Bondo Professional spot putty/glazing compound to build up the panel thickness i desired (about as thick as a hotel key card). This stuff flows/spreads very smoothly, and sands easily.

    On the other side (no pics...it looks the same) I've used 2-part Bondo Professional body filler which mixes the same (hardener to putty ratios), is somewhat thicker on application, so doesn't quite spread as nice. It is much harder to sand, although still very sandable. Seems to be much less susceptible to dings.

    So....I'm thinking the body filler may be a better choice for me, long-term.

    The body filler is better for building, and stronger, but as you said is not as smooth or easy to sand as the glaze.

    I like Evercoat. Very light and sandable.

    Thanks.... I'm gonna sand off the first side (all glaze) and redo it with the filler.

    Sanded off the spot potty panels and redoing it all with the body filler. Not much to show, as it looks the same in a pic.
    getting closer to paint time though!!!
