Now i'm using testors contour putty and i'm having trouble with it. I try to put the two parts together and then put the putty on, but that doesn't work.

Next I tryed to put the putty in between the pieces before bringing them together and that doesn't work, so now i'm stuck. :(
Hey, how's it going?

What the??? Please go back, reread your post, realize that no one knows what you're asking due to poor grammar, and repost in proper, clear, concise, english.

Thanks! :shock:

Testors contour putty sucks. Don't use it.

Put thin model cement on both halves and squeeze till plastic oozes forth. WHen completely dry, sand. the melted plastis will act like a putty. If you still have holes, use Mr. Surfacer 500 in the jar, or Tamiya Basic Putty to fill and then sand when cured.

Yesh - putty equals putty, not glue.  Use glue to hold the two pieces together, and then putty to fill in any imperfections - not the other way around.  Your choice of putty and glue will obviously depend on the type of kit you are building - model cement for plastic kits, super glue for resin (though super glue can also be used on plastic kits - but model cement can not be used on resin! ).  Mr Surfacer I believe is good for any surface - tamiya basic putty is good for plastic kits - and there is always SGT!!!

If you aren't willing to take advice when you ask for it the first time, then you'll find that members aren't going to be very willing to offer any help.

Let's just nip this one in the bud right now.

If you have any more general questions, go there first.  Browse through their Tech Library and FAQ.  If you don't find an answer to your question, or if your question is way more specific than they get into on Starship Modelers, then you can ask it here.
