2nd hawker hurricane 1:50 scale
« on: March 22, 2014, 11:26:23 PM »
this plane is not yet finished, I am still trying to find something to use for a fillet! I cut the wing recess to deep so am trying to fill it up with scrap wood.

Biggles get yourself a pack of DAS Modelling material,you can easily make up fillets with this,just press a rolled strip into the wing to fuselage joint and wet your finger shaping and moulding it,then allow it to dry,remove the fillet which does not stick to wood and glue it back again,all of my fillets are made this way,art shops sell it plus EBay stores,once you open the bag seal it well by taping up otherwise its air drying qualities will be very apparent with a soilid lump within days,its cheap and works really well,best of luck with your interesting projects.

thanks, I do not think it would work for un-paited models. ;)

My local hardware store sells little tubes of wood filler.  Cellulose based, I think it's for furniture repair and comes in various shades, pine, oak etc.  It says it can be stained to match the wood, I only used it for fillets on balsa to be painted.
