|TAMIYA R32, This in my stash now!|
Meet again in this part 3 of my Nissan Skyline R32 build up.
On the last post we stop at wetsanding the godzilla. Wetsanding is the term used for sanding on any surface with the help of water. Water help to smoothen the sanding and give a silky and nice surface. Do not apply too much pressure when wetsanding as it will easily torn up your kit.
My R32 were wetsanded to my heart content. I wetsand every surface and corner crevice and hole that were moldes upon on the bodyshell of my R32. I want my R32 bodyshell smooth and free from any moldlines and uneven surface. The purpose of wetsanding your mokit is too eleminate moldlines and give a nice and smooth surface. Okay. Enough long word. Let view the pictures and read caption.
For Q&A please comment on the comment box.
