Howzit all,

I've seen Mr Surfacer (I believe it's made by Gunze Sanyo) mentioned quite a bit in the forums lately. It seems like quite a nice filler to use, being liquid and applied with a brush...

Does anyone in SA stock it? I don't recall seeing it in any of the CPT LHS's... And to expand on that question.... who's the Gunze Sanyo agent in SA?

TIA

Rudi

Not sure about SA (We fly tomorrow, yaaaay), but mr Surfacer has an import ban on it in the Netherlands because of it being so toxic.. Apparently. However, thats in bulk. You can sneak some under the radar like the way my man at plasticmodelbouw.nl did by ordering 6 jars from hobby link japan.

Hmmmm, I didn't realise it was toxic... guess I'll steer clear then...

You must be looking forward to the sunshine! We're approaching the end of a hot summer here

For some odd reason they deem it toxic, while other nasties are imported without the bat of an eyelid..


You have no idea.. I got snowed on yesterday..
