    The putty? You can still wet sand once it's dry.

    Which is why you never have your eye in line with the wheel. Even with a steel cutting blade. Had one too many close calls myself.

    And beware the decals. The ones with mine @ least were the thickest, most non-conforming decals I have ever dealt with. Even Solvaset didn't do much to them. Love the new barrels.

    It's the repeating of parts that always kills me. Love machining, hate machining the same part multiple times.

    Quick question on cement

    Mr. Surfacer is best applied in thin coats. Thin layers dry faster which means you can follow up with a second (or third) coat w/o as much wait. Or, if you're like me, glob on a thicker coat before bed and let it cure overnight.

    I use Mr. Surfacer 500 for such shallow flaws.

    Well me being pedantic or not, here's my pictures from the 2017 Wonderfest this is just the mecha, if you hop out one you'll find the anime, horror, scif/fantasy, dioramas, etc.

    Wonderfest vs Wonderfestival

    Wonderfest, once a year in Louisville Kentucky. Wonder Festival, twice a year in Japan. Now, how do we educate the rest of the board? Just drives me nuts hearing people chat about X model that was available @ Summer Wonderfest, when they mean Wonder Festival.

    Wonderfest vs Wonderfestival

    Well you should as it's the largest Scifi/Fantasy/Horror scale modeling how in on the continent. Some amazing stuff shows up both in the contest room and from dealers. As soon as I get them downloaded I'll post some images.

    Limited releases, yes. Licensed, not so much. 2 days instead of one. Model contest along with vendors, How-To classes, presentations, and special displays.

    Funny thing is the Kentucky one got started because of Wonder Festival in Japan. Hence the similarity, As a note, it's next week https://wonderfest.com/

    Tamiya clear coats are a synthetic lacquer which while safe to use on acrylics can re-activate solvent based enamels.

    If worse comes to worse... strip it and do it over again.

    Crap that shouldn't have happened? Had you thinned the clear coat by any chance?

    Rough up the mating surfaces before you epoxy, it'll improve grip.

    You can also look into focus stacking software. Makes for really sharp images of miniatures.
