    Recommendations for what sandpaper stick to use?

    I know a few of the members here have suggested using them. I was wondering what type work best and where to get them from?

    Start with a 400 grain, then a 600 grain, then an 800 grain, and finally finish with a 1000 grain. You should spend about 10-15 minutes for each type to yield the best results. As to where to get them from, try your local hardware or hobby store.

    A bit pricey but they do last for a few kits. My initial 2 packs have lasted for about 6-7 kits and still going.

    I recommend everything said here- except I leave 800 grit out. That's just me. TECHNICALLY you should do it, but I haven't noticed any superior results versus 400/600/1000. That's my go to formula:

    rough house (rougher grit)/400/600/1000 wet
    Clean up the house and you're good to go for prime and/or paint

    For stuff that doesn't need to be filed down, I start with 400 and continue down the chain.
