John I had my PPP for a couple of years and it does go off and get a bit hard below the nozzle screw cap. I use a small screwdriver to get the hardened bit out and then found it useable again. Feel the tube itself. If it is pliable then it is possibly the same as I encountered.
Have not used Vallejo, and sounds as though you recommend iit. I guess it stays soft in the tube? Does it go on and smooth down better than Perfect Plastic Putty generally?

With my PPP the whole lot went solid, despite not drying out, leading me to think it was an age reaction of some sort Noel. If you are able to replace it as required, then I would say go for it. PPP is probably the best acrylic putty I’ve used.

Noel, this morning I did exactly as you mentioned, pushed through that hard top section and cleaned the thin nozzle, all working well now :thumb2: So thanks for that


Used both types to day , both east to use , wipe with a damp finger. Between the two I found the Vallejo to be thinner.

Out of the two have to agree with Tim , esp when sanding the PPP is easier.

Glad to hear that your PPP is useable and OK John.
Thanks Noel, I'd just left it lying there , so was grateful for the suggestion. I tried mixing it with a drop of grey primer, then using a cheap brush blended it in . Not entirely sure if it's ok , some more experiments with the amount of paint / filler needed .
