For wood fills we often use a product called Abatron, made in
Kenosha, Wisconsin.  It is a white, lightweight, two-part epoxy
filler that I have been very pleased with.  It is quite hard but is
also easily carved and sanded. It adheres well to most clean
substrates.  You can find more information at

several European languages, so I would assume they ship to Europe.
