Auto body spot putty works well, sands easily.

Elmers light wood filler works, too -- takes longer to dry, but less stink.

Will auto body spot putty work on body tubes?

they both work fine, tho bondo spot putty is designed to go on top of primer rather than under it.

I usually use some kind of wood filler than after the rocket is primed and sanded , if there are still some small imperfections I want to fill, I break out the spot putty.

This is how I do mine as well. I thin out my wood filler to a soupy consistency and brush it on the spirals. I save all of the promotional credit cards I receive in the mail and use those after primer and sanding to apply glazing putty where needed. I then wet sand over the glazing and primer.
