Re: putty to smooth a joint between two sections of a plastic model

Does Bondo shrink when it dries? Can it handle expansion and contraction without cracking? I’m looking of a product to fill in the irregularities in a 0.080 in. styrene backdrop splice where I put too much pressure on the splice plate behind the butt joint, creating a slight trough on either side of the splice plate when viewed from the front of the backdrop.

I use a Bondo auto putty from WalMart.  I know all the purists will poo poo this but it works for me and it lasts a long time.
