Condition number 1 has been satisfied. The new tool is all assembled and on my workbench.
I was curious to see if there was a difference in wood fillers between the various types of paint. I’ve always used Acrylic’s on my models and the kit came with oil based paints.
I like your method. I’ll have to try that on my next build.For gap filling I like to sand the model on newspaper keeping all the sanding dust I then mix that with glue and fill gaps with it, if you keep it sticky enough it will even fill depressions. small gaps or cracks I just lay some glue right into the crack and sand over it the particles bind with the glue that will still be wet and fill it in nicely.
