Sanding sealer
« on: August 03, 2013, 12:17:04 PM »

Does anyone use sanding sealer? I can't get any locally except stuff that's only good for a wax finish. And I've been told you can't post solvents anymore.

Clear Cellulose (If you can still get it) and a slack handful of Talcum powder.   O0   Cellulose thinners if you're going to use the former for Tissue covering the hull.

Thanks for all the tips , I have found a local supplier of the Deluxe range of products, will check them out. And I have just bought some Halfords clear laquer for my son's plastic model he's making, might have just 'borrow' some of that back!
