Uh, if this is a question "what (a hell) are you doing?", see at the top of this page 2.
If this is disagreeing, sorry for this butchery, lacking room for storage.

The belated sanding is done:

But there are holes remaining, and that will need putty once (or twice) more. I must wait to receive the extra tubes for this. The parcel is delayed because of the missing Su-27 1/144 in the same invoice (to avoid postage payment, reaching the bargain total...) :-\

I have received the putty, a big amount of it. And I have started filling "holes":

I think you could repair the M1 Motorway with that lot Tophe  ;D

I can just imagine the discussion in the Revell boardroom.  "We need to increase production of Plasto. There has been a huge surge in sales"  ;)

:)  I think that'd be about a year's supply for me, my friend!  :)  But hey - you can't do magic without the proper equipment, right?  :)  I'm fascinated to see how this turns out.  :)

Thanks!
But you know: there is an explanation about my huge use of putty - in 3D, 1/32nd (left) is almost 3 million times bigger than 1/72nd (right):
