Try filling the sink holes with a little superglue and let it sit until cured. Body putty won't work as you will have to sand a lot of it away and the detail will go with it. Can you substitute some treadplate from Don Mills? He makes a good piece that you can cut into any size you would need.

Charlie,

The Don Mills treadplate is scaled more for 1/32 scale.

Plastruct has some that is much easier IMO to work with. It's the tan colored one, and IIRC it says its HO scale.

There is also treadplate by JTT Architectural Model Parts #97449.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue

Unless they have changed the size of their "HO" scale Tread-Plate
Plastruct's was closer to 1/32
It was what I used on ALL my 1/32 bashes & Scratxhbuilds
It matches(Matched) That on Monogram/Revell 1/32 Snaptite
truck kits. Not Just the MACK CF Pumper, but all others too!!!

Don's treadplate is very close to what is in the ALF kit. The difference between 1/32 and 1/25 treadplate is not that noticeable once it is in place.
