Hi Simon,

I have used Squadron's green putty on different projects and have never had any problems with it. I think that it is a very handy item to have on hand.

Never really had a problem with it other than the price. You can get a tube of Auto body putty that's 3 or 4 times the size for about the same price.

Ha.....too funny. I open up all the windows, doors, turn the fans on, etc. Then I put on my level 2 gas mask with particle atomizer and antifog lens.

This is at least the impression I got the first time using it and man does it kick when you breath it in close. Please note, I did not inhale with the intent of finding out what colors were going to begin to blob up in my sight or what dead president would show up to chat.

I cant say cause I havent used it too much but it sure beats the majority of puttys that I have tried. It is the "good stuff" in my opinion and maybe some sacrificing of brain cells is worth the finish the putty gives.

In all reality, I was not being sarcastic about the fans and windows being on and opened. I actually thought about throwing on my paintball mask with ventillation fan but figured I would wait for some sign before being too drastic.
