Hi guys,
I bought this product the other day after watching this YouTube video, well it arrived today and I thought I would have a play with it on a scrap 1/48 Corsair:

It comes in a top opening round tin and contains 80g of soft oily putty:

Here is the Corsair:

A splash of green on the wing:

Then the putty is applied, like Blu-Tac the more you manipulate it the softer and more compliant it becomes:
Image

Then some sandy coloured paint was applied:
Image

And the big reveal, the results are clearly not dissimilar to Blu-Tac, however there are no oily stains to contend with on your paint work, and like Blu-Tac it can be used time and time again:
Image

I will be using this on my future builds, both AFV and aircraft :thumb:

Hope you have found this useful :D

Isn't it a Mig product - I can't see Ammo anywhere on it :scratch:
