I put some Milliput on a model last night to fill an engine nacelle that was "short shot" in the mold. The plastic was so thin you could see through it and the engine nacelle was not the correct shape (an old Monogram kit, BTW). I kneaded the 2 parts of Milliput together (and yes, they were well mixed) and placed it on the weak, distorted area last night around 10 P.M. I tried to sand it today on my lunch hour (around noon) and once I sanded through the upper layer (which was very hard and cured to the touch), the underlying layer was still rather gummy and did not want to sand well. The total depth of the Milliput was about 2-4 mm thick. I stopped sanding and will let it cure out for another day or 2 until it is completely set up. Is this typical for Milliput? I have just started using this filler over the past couple years and usually don't have to put it on this thick. I was somewhat concerned when it was not completly cured throughout. TIA for your input.
