For high strength filler I too use 407, works well but the epoxy does take quite a while to dry.

I know there will be resistance to it, but automotive bondo works pretty well, just takes some experimenting to find a color you can live with, it most definitely isn't wood colored. But it sands easily, sticks well and dries really fast. Oh yeah, epoxy sticks to it well too, but it's not structural. Don't buy the stuff at the auto parts stores, it's generally old stock and is hard to use, the automotive paint stores sell it often and it's usually fresh and work much easier.
