I guess there's always epoxy putty, like Milliput. What are you planning on using it for? General filling or zimmerit.......?

Squadron makes a white or green putty that might fit your requirements. It is sold in most hobby stores or can be ordered through Squadron, VLS. I've used it for everything from filling gaps to zimmerit. The smell is not too bad and it is workable fairly quickly.

I have not had much use for water based putties on plastic models. Without additional glue the putty just falls off.

Speaking about glue, white glue can be used to fill small seams and is water-soluable.

I found some Squadron Green Putty at a nearby model store (there was also white and red). It dissolves with nail polish remover I believe. Personally, I think the smell of the toluene is a little obnoxious (and deadly ).
