Re: Shapeways models in WSF material prepping and M of M models
After sanding, several coats of acrylic paint and several more of slightly diluted Future, I was getting nowhere with Gadila. Surface still had pebbly finish. So, I took the advice posted to my prior note and went to an auto-parts store and bought a can of Rust-oleum 2-in-1 Filler & Sandable primer. Cleaned the surface and sprayed 3 light coats of primer. I now have a very nice smooth surface which I plan to seal and spray with Vallejo Sea Grey. If it works, I should be able to proceed normally. If it had been any other model than Gadila, I would have probably given up before now.
I am always indebted for the advice collectors are willing to offer.
: After reading Roger Dawson's post on the
: Gadila thread, I have ordered some solvent
: free sanding sealer, and have just placed an
: order for 3 "Never-weres" in White
: Strong and flexible from Shapeways, in
: addition to 2 models in FUD from Masters of
: Military recommended by Charles Jones, also
: from Shapeways. When I get everything and
: start to work on them, I will let you know
: how I fared with both groups, and maybe have
: a picture or two for comparison.
