  1. Hi all, I've just sprayed a model with Tamiya Liquid Surface Primer. I thinned with Tamiya Lacquer Thinner it to about 2:1 - twice the amount of thinner as primer - and added a small amount of Tamiya Paint Retarder. I ran the airbrush at about 18 psi, which seemed to work very well with almost no graining. The problem is that I seem to have attracted some dust (I haven't got a spray booth) in some sections which will need sanding and there are a couple of other spot which need a touch up too, probably with some Mr Surfacer 500. Otherwise, it's not bad. So the question is, what do you use to rub this stuff down? I have some very fine grade paper, like 1200 and 2000. Will that do it properly? Any advice welcome and gratefully received.
  2. Hi Guys I've had some squadron sanding sticks for many years and they've been excellent, although worn, I've downgraded them to polishing tasks now, so I replaced like for like with new ones, thing is, these new ones are wearing away quicker than I thought and only after a few uses. I've been to a few nail salons shops in the area and asked if they sold the ones they used (raised a few eyebrows asking) but they don't sell to the public and the manufacturer she gave me will only sell in bulk. So what's the best out there at the moment, that fellow modellers recommend. Thank you in advance Norman
