Seam Line Removal, 101
And here is the final product :
1.) Method 1 - The glue and sand technique.
2.) Method 2 - The Shaving technique.
3.) Method 3 - The Putty technique.
When you prime your kit, go over all seams again as a lot of the time, seams can seem to be invisible and can't be felt but as soon as primer is added, the bits missed will show up clearly.
If you find that there are still seams after all that, use the Putty technique to fill them again. Sand it back, re-prime and check again. If there is still a seam, repeat again until it has gone completely.
Remember to check carefully, there is nothing worse than finding a seam (and it's usually the one most visible too) right at the end of painting the piece and having to start again!
