OK. I should probably test some of these ideas before I suggest them...

Probably. Nevertheless, I thought this might be worth throwing into the mix:

I've recently started using the UV-light curable liquid resin. Bondic is one of the brands that makes a pen with the resin, and has a UV light on the other end to cure it - cures in a few seconds, and you can tidy it up a little bit with a toothpick or old brush before you cure it. I haven't tried sanding it and it can be a little messy - I usually put it on my palette (or a piece of cardboard) and apply with a toothpick for smaller areas - but it works great and I find it a lot less painful than preparing green stuff, etc.

I just went back to the classic wall filler. Just thinning it down until it can easily be pushed in the gaps ( I use a wooden cocktail stick for it ) and then spread it with a cotton bud. Primitive but it works. If I need to add detail will use some miliput on top of it but I've found this the quickest and easiest way to prep multipart plastics and Reaper Bones...
