I've seen some pictures of hulls in various stages of completion recentlythat raised a question. It appeared that the paper had been sanded with the most noticeable parts showing color removal at the former area. Then the modeler spray paints or coats the bottom hull in the appropriate red coloring. Some with a gloss or satin sheen to them. They look great. My question, are the gaps in the individual pieces of plating paper being filled? With what? Is there a specific thread that shows this process? I would like to take my hulls to a new level. There are a great bunch of ships out there and finishing the bottom part some time kills the rest of the model. Especially when your a neurotic perfectionist.
