I've seen this stuff at one of my local hobby shops but I have never given it a try. I use thinned Elmer's Fill'N Finish on balsa and Krylon paints almost exclusively. I will be anxious to hear your opinion about the Micro Fill.

krylon you mean the same as you buy at any hard ware store? and it is fine on the plastic NC. also I will be sure to let you know how the micro fill works.

Yes, I usually get mine at Wally World for less than $3 per can. For plastic make sure you wash it, sand it and prime it (also Krylon) before spraying your color coat.
