Files and sandpaper are basic tools for any modeller who wants to have their model kits to be a step higher. MADWORKS offer us 2 possible options for this sandpaper: sponge and adhesive. For general use, where the surface is not totally even or there is no need to make a hard sanding, (no hardlines or hard planes) the sponge will be a great choice. It is small enough to be easily handled, it has some thickness so you can apply pressure and distribute it in a wider area evenly.
There are different thicknesses: sponges of 2mm, 3mm, and 5mm. In case you need them to be thicker, you can always use a double sided tape and tape 2 together, resulting in new thickness combinations as 4mm (2+2), 6mm (3+3), 7mm (2+5), 8mm (3+5) and 10mm (5+5).
There are tons of guides or videos in youtube showing you how to use sandpaper so you can ask ?Google-sama?. There are many techniques and we wouldn?t dare to claim that there is one better than another. But as a general rule ?
To take off the imperfections, the nubs, and paint later on then we will suggest you go 400 - 600 - 800 - 1000 always that you can with circular movements.
In case we want to leave it as it is, and you want to have a smooth reflective finish then you will have to go 400- 600 - 800 - 1000 - 1500 - 3000 at least and use the back of the sponge to get the shiny effect.
