After sanding the ugly nubs with 600, 1000 grit paper, i'll move on to using COMPOUND!! wooo.. pls take note that its COARSE. For beginners like me who have never used compound before, i suggest that you practice on those runners' labels like how you'll prepare the surface.. and polish the surface after with compound. as see if you liked that finish on your gundam instead of regretting lata. =) i found out that jus by using coarse compound, it's enough to get the sanded area back to the same smoothness as it originally was. if you continue on with the FINE compound, you'll get a slightly reflective surface alr.
i used cotton stick to appy the compound.. ^^
the surface after coarse compound, tho its smooth, these two nubs seems resilient. will hafta use markers to cover it...
gonna sharpen these V fins..
i've also sharpen these GN swords..
the edges of the GN is sharpen but not polished with compound becos.......
its gonna be spray painted! wooo.. lolx.
GN Dagger project..
i've made used of extra runners for GN dagger. i've alr started sanding.. you can see the shape is slowly showing.. ^^
after alot of filing, its time to create the plug that connects to the 'handles'
it fits!! yay... so now its jus some fine tuning left to do...
