    I think you could mess around with fillers, resins and repair kits but without sufficient practice I doubt it will ever look much good.  I think I would just bite the bullet and pay one of the plastic repair people (I expect it to cost in the region of £150 - £300).  As well as filling and sanding it smooth they will also paint it, and blend the paint in with the surrounding area.

    I've read a lot of complaints where such a repair starts to peel and become visible again - I suspect when it's in a high traffic area or sprayed with acidic cleaning products.  However on the edge like that, I would expect a repair to last.

    I have a hairline crack in exactly the same place as yours.  I was quoted £150 to fix it but as it's barely noticeable I didn't ever bother.
    For that price i woold buy another bath tub and fit it properly  :)
    ITS NOT EASY TO GET EVERYTHING WRONG ,I HAVE TO WORK HARD TO DO IT!
  • Long shot but you could check if there are any places or contractors with 3D printers and see if someone would be able to print a new piece for you. No idea on costs though.
