Estes Apollo Little Joe II Build, Part 26, Tower Spot Fill
At the center of the "X" indent of the tower there is a round mold circle. There really isn't a way to use spot putty on it, it'd be very hard to sand smooth.
It took two applications to fill the dent. No sanding was needed to smooth it out.
EDIT: After a shot of gloss white, I'll have to go back and do another application of CA glue filler. This might be more work than it's worth!
On the escape tower tube the ends were fuzzy after sanding down the first coat of white on the tower tube.
Some CA was applied with a Q-tip followed by light sanding. The CA was brushed on the inside and just over the top to the outside. Note the CA coat does not go deep into the tube. You don't want to seal the tube where plastic parts will be glued in later.
