Hi all,


I couldn't decide where to place my query as the margins for the subject are so wide. The answers are so vast, it almost becomes complex.


I'm building the Smit Rotterdam by Billing Boats 1:75 scale. I am about to start sanding. I have applied non-polyester resin and 3/4 oz fibreglass cloth to the inside of the hull. Solid as a church! Looks great.


Most builders share either home made ideas or suggest fillers by brand name. This serves well if you're near the same county, province, state or country. 


I want to fibreglass the outside of my hull after I have it all filled and sanded smooth. I'd like to know what type of filler is compatible with the type of resin / fibreglass I am using?


Much appreciated mates.😊
