I sand my prints before I do anything else, so the layer lines are smaller before spraying with filler-primer. After that, using Bondo glazing putty to fill major dings that cannot be covered with filler-primer. I always use higher grits and look for dips, lines, or chips in the gloss of the sanded primer. My perspective is 'if you can see it in the gloss, you will see it in the metallic paint.'

Thank you all so much for your help and advice! I think I will sand a little using 120 then put some wood filler/putty and then sand some more. Then I will probably use 220.

Su'cuy friends! I'm finally back at working on my kit. I painted my armor and are working on my blaster still. I put way to much putty on it, so I've had a lot to sand down. I also pained my vibroknife which was exciting :porg2: 

NOTE: I also by accidently deleted all the pictures I had on imgur which in turn deleted them off my wip and topic. lucky I had some of the pictures saved on my computer but unfortunately the rest got deleted. I did my best to recreate the photos but if they don't match up perfectly that's why.

You're back!  That yellow is VIBRANT and I'm here for it. Let's see some more updates this summer.

That's a bummer about the photos - sounds like you were able to resucitate your images for the most part though.

Thanks, I'll try to update more. I should be starting my gauntlets soon and finishing up my blasters. So updates will be coming

Thanks vode! The whole picture thing was a pain. Hopefully it won't happen again. ;D
