Spotlight Review

"Dries fast, a little difficult to apply"
I've tried both the Tamiya and the Testors putty and personally I find the Testor's one to be better. This putty dries really quickly on the outside, so if you don't move fast enough the outside of the putty dries and hardens while the inside is still soft and liquid-like. This makes it messier and harder to apply, in my opinion. The Testor's one dries uniformly and is easier to work with in my experience.

"Tamyia putty review"
Like most modelers, I used Squadron Green putty for years, sadly, it is no longer available. I tried the Tamyia Basic type putty and Testors Putty. Both are equal to Squadron putty: both fill well, both sand well. The only differences I see are the containers. For the Tamyia putty, an applicator tool is essential. The cap is a large diameter and short. The Testors is in the old familiar tube which makes application easier in small areas. The applicator tool is still usable, but may not be always needed for Testors. Do not use either putty as a nose weight because it tends to soften the plastic and may ruin your model. Both will accept paint equally.

Great all around filler. Dries fast and sands easily. Only complaint is that it will shrink when filling larger areas so two coats may be necessary. But all in all good stuff. One tube last forever.

"Does what it says"
This is a basic gray putty that fills well and stays in place. This dries fast, and any excess can be easily cut away with a hobby knife. It sands pretty well, but only if it has dried. If you try to sand it before it dries completely it will make a mess. This should be used with putty application tools to get the best results. A tube of this is not small, and should last through many models.
