    I have been using epoxy and balloons as filler-fairing material. As it kicks, it liquifies and loses its place. :eek: Suggestions? :p

    Mix it thicker till it is like peanutbutter, and add a little colloidal silica(sp) to the mix to control sagging. I've hearn talc works too, but I have never used it.
