    Anybody using this light curing putty? Just had a blast with it last night, and i have to say, im really impressed.
    Ive been looking for a quick curing, NON SHRINK putty for an age now, finally it seems ive found it.
    Comes out kinda like runny egg yolk, and is very easy to apply, but its the curing that blows me away.
    Its not air drying at all, the blob i spread out on a piece of styrene stayed plyable for hours.
    Its when i applied light, via my bench Flourescent that it cured in about a minute and a half and was easily sanded in.
    Give it a go guys, its not cheap, but then most imported Tamiya products arent.

    Just saw it at my Local Hobby Shop today. Its very pricey for a small tube.

    Anyway, I would like to ask, instead of any light, would UV light cure it faster? Do we really have to work in the dim light? Just askin'
