I have just been wondering......When I start scratchbuilding will I be building shelvequeens or do they stand up to the occasional wheelbanging en deslotting during a race?

I use Milliput on nearly all my scratchbuilds and remodelling.

There isn't a single car I don't race and I've never had a milliput related problem.

Have a butchers at the threads in my signature to see.

Just mix it well and it sets like a stone!

The answer depends upon how much of your car is made from Milliput.

I've used it for wheel arches and minor filling around plastic and it's tough.

It seems very tough in my experience, but I suppose you should follow the same rules as any kind of filler – make sure the surfaces are really clean first and give the filler something to key into so make the bodyshell slightly rough. If the filler is on a very vulnerable area like the front bumper which is will be hit hard in a crash maybe it would help to drill the bodyshell so some of the filler can hold better.
