So a few updates since last. I've done a bit of work on the blasters but I'm waiting on some smooth on xtc-3d so I can coat the blasters and smooth out the glue lines. Then I'll sand and repaint both of them ready to detail.




My armour from Jim Tripon turned up today as well. Where on Earth do I start now? Sanding?

Question on preparation prior to spray painting. Do I sand the pieces completely smooth first? As in start sanding with a low grit paper then work to 2000 grit before painting? Or do I sand with low grit, prime it, sand, paint, sand, etc? Complete noob when it comes to this.

I have Jim's kit. I did all my trimming etc., before I sanded anything. I sanded in this order: 80, 120, 200. Tack clothed, then primed with three light coats of rustoleum spray filler. Wet Sanded 400, 600, 800. Tack clothed and wiped down with isopropyl alcohol. Painted with three light coats of rustoleum 2X Pro gloss black. Then wet sanded with 800, 1000, 1500. I then used Mequiar's Ultimate Compound to buff shine the paint, followed with their ultimate polish to add a little extra shine. If you plan on any weathering, do it before you polish.


Note: If there are any deep imperfections, fill with Bondo before your first sanding.
