I'm having a problem with the gaps in the models. Does anyone have suggestions on what gap filler to use.

I would suggest Games Workshop's liquid green, yes it is a tad expensive but you only need a little.

Otherwise any two part epoxy (green or grey whatever) will do, but will need light sanding once cured.

if the gaps are not super big, you can also just use a little gel super glue and wipeaway the excess before it sets.

Just a quick add, finally got my hands on the kits/models at the weekend - I am based in the UK - and quickly put ogether some tests from each sprue.

The Spartan/Phalanx is definately the worst culprit but nothing major, so I wondered what "glue" you were using. I have seen a lot of pepole online using various types of super glue. Me I use Revell polysterene cement and the gentle melt this has when bonding really cuts down on any gaps and seams - I know others report the same using testors.

Might not be so , but a change of glue might help as well
