Assuming you're going to paint the whole model......how do you sand (to remove gloss and get tooth) all those wonderful rivet/screw/panel lines? I've been prepping my Krill Extra for a custom paint job, and it's a lot of work.....and it's a smooth airplane, not a warbird like the Spit.

so i sand all the lines from the moulds, primer all parts where i worked on. after this you have to use scotch brite and work on all survaces. otherwise the paint will not stay on.

send you some photos bevor i start painting.
