Ever had a seam that just won't disappear? I'm redoing a 20 yr old Hellcat model

from a tricolor to overall dark sea blue....the seam on
top right in front of the windscreen runs about a 1/4"
then fades into the center of the foward fuselage. I've put some Mr. Surfacer 500 in it twice and smoothed, but when I shoot the paint the sanded edges haven't feathered
and shows through gloss paint. Think I'll try one more time, masking the two scribed panels off, brush on some Mr.S, smooth it then spray on some MrS before the gloss.
I've been short cutting after sanding and just appling the gloss blue over the sanded area....wasn't noticeable
when it was flat sea blue. Trying to stay away from having to do much extra because the finish on the rest of the model is beautiful...sure enough to screw something else up trying fix one little spot.....

Keep your Sprues Empty
