The problem, even with a fine putty filler like Milliput is that you cannot make it in as thin trips as you need to with out it maybe crumbling. It's robust but not that robust. Plastic rod is a better bet, I think.

in my experience is "maybe"
Well yes. Everything can fail. In fact I'm more than
interested now to try this. It might not work properly, as you
The problem with
wiping it down with a fingertip, is that if I apply enough
pressure to remove the excess, i also apply enough pressure to
indent the putty that's supposed to be filling the indent! I
end up with reduced but not eliminated lines.
It might take certain practice to wipe off the right
amount of putty, that's true. I guess that a) the amount of putty
should be just a thin "string" over the rib and b) pushing it over
the groove with a wet finger might be with just enough pressure to
stick the putty over the plastic yet no to carry it off the
surface. I guess it would take some practice to get it right and
some cleaning up after. Gee, it's the same with many other
that's what I *want* usually - to reduce rather than remove a
panel line. However for filling entirely where there should be
no channel, not so good.
I usually clog the panel lines with sanding dust., then I paint
forgetting that the model is clogged up.
