This is the best joint and gap filler I have found and used. It goes on very easy with the tube end. It works better if you use a latex glove and apply with your finger. In most cases this works well. I have some what thick fingers so sometimes I have difficulty getting into tight spaces on my models. I usually use the pointed end of a hobby knife for better application in these areas. I recently purchased a Putty Applicator from Hobbylinc as well for just these tight situations. I plan on reviewing it later once I have used the tool. This product comes out in a paste form a bit like toothpaste or silicone caulk. It sometimes will take a few applications to cover a gap properly. It does not dry too quickly which is great so you can work your best to get the excess off with a damp cloth. In those cases where you do get a bit too much you can just sand off the extra. This stuff is usually dry in about 12 hour so you can sand. The only con about the product is it looks a bit odd on the model as it does not have the same look or consistence as the plastic. But much easier to work with than super glue or epoxy, both of which I have used in the past. It does look great after you paint it, can't even tell. I like to use a trick to make sure it blends well. After it has thoroughly dried and been sanded to where I like it, I put a light coat of super glue over it with a brush applicator. This gives it very smooth look. Not sure if this is the best thing to do. Some other more experienced modelers might disagree. It has worked well for me. This is the best filling product on the market for models. Testors has done a great job in creating and formulating this product.

"Works well enough"

I've used this putty for years on my plastic models. It does a decent job in filling smallish gaps but it takes practice to get a good result. For my taste the consistency is a bit too thin. I've found that if you have big gaps or holes to fill you might have to apply the putty twice after letting the first application dry. It will be somewhat brittle when dry, so any exposed putty will easily break off. On the plus side, the color is perfect for painting. The working time is good; doesn't dry out too fast. If you have a toothpick you can get it into just about any gap. I still haven't found anything better for my purposes so I will continue to use it.

 
"A very good product that does exactly what you want for an excellent price."

This is a really good product. It is easy to work with and can be sanded and cut without a lot of effort required. Compared to other products that I have used in the past, this is the easiest and most cost effective way to go. The only negative thing I can say about this, and this really isn't negative at all in fact, is how quickly it will dry. Be sure to have your plan ready when using this because you will not have time to slow down. However, for people as impatient as I am waiting for things to dry, this is the product for you. I enjoyed using it so much that I recently placed an order for several more.

Testors Plastic Putty is a good putty for a cheap price. When I was using it to help fill in some spaces in my F-5 Tiger II model, I noticed that it dried very quickly. (Hint: One must ALWAYS put the lid back on immediately after use. Squeeze gently to prevent a slow pouring of putty that, if the lid is not put back on, will dry quickly and be wasted. However, when I first squeezed the tube, only a clear liquid pours out before the more solid putty comes out. I do not know how to prevent this.) Once the putty was put on the model and smoothed out, the paint went over it nicely with no problems. I would definitely recommend this putty as a good, cheap alternative to other more expensive putties.
