Bondo is a two part epoxy auto body filler which is sandable. It could be used to fill seams, etc. on models, but it comes in large quantities, and it is designed for metal surfaces, so might damage model surfaces especially if it generates heat in curing. Spotting puttty is used to fill small dents and surface flaws on cars, and might be useful as a filler putty, indeed Squadron Green filler is a lacquer-based auto type putty. Haven't tried glazing putty, but most types don't dry, so their used for modeling might be pretty limited.

I believe glazing putty is a very fine smooth creamy type of filler used as a last coat before primer and paint. Bondo is a more course filler used as a base to build up a large area. Even with lots of sanding it does not produce as good of a finish as glazing putty. I can not comment on spot putty as I've never heard of it.

I do a lot of body work and paint in my job and this is how it was explained to me years ago. The names of the product may change, but the basic pricipal should be the same.

Oh by the way. I have seen these types of fillers used on a.b.s. plastic with no problems. I don't know how it would work with styrene.
