Tamiya Basic Type Putty is used for filling in seams when assembling plastic model kits or RC models that use ABS or styrene plastic bodies.
The putty is gray in color and may be applied with a flat surface tool.
Tamiyaâ€™s basic type putty is not intended to fill large gaps. It is meant to fill in seams and imperfections in plastic model surfaces. The basic putty may also be used for resin model, metal model and vinyl model applications.
Mr. BASE WHITE is useful for making a black, red or other dark-colored surface white. This newly developed product uses special pigments to completely hide the base color and aids application of detailed finishing and top coats. Because it also works as a surfacer, it can be used to hide small imperfections. - Personal advice Clean the surface with sandpaper before applying surfacer, + after applying surfacer, kindly wait for a moment until the surface dries. - How long to wait for the this white base1000 to dry? Normally at minimum of time :), please wait an hour for it to dry to cover the surface. - Do I need thinner for this white base 1000 to dry? Since are using the bottles, you should thin them with a 50:50 or a 60:40 ratio to prevent "cobwebbing". "Cowebbing" - means the primer dries as soon as it is sprayed out of an airbrush, leading to an effect that looks like spider webs.
