But the fuselage on my 1/5 Petrel is skinned with balsa not ply, so I've never used the car filler. The lightweight filler that I use in cracks and dents takes film okay over small areas but, as you say, I'd be wary of larger areas for fear of the filler lifting. I suspect the car body filler has much stronger cohesion than these lightweight fillers though, so may be okay.

just about finished now and soon be ready to fly. one last highly technical question - any recommendations for the rubber bands or other elastic to hold the wings?

If you Google No 63 Rubber Bands, I've been using these for years...

Finally, finally, a decent day's flying at White Sheet. The Petrel, along with other Slope Virgins, like Trev's 5th scale Petrel and my Zugvogel, had a merry old time... (Also, the little Wolf slopeside in it's new livery for the 1st time)
