Hi,all,take a look at the polishing sticks below.What do you guys think?

one is for basic polishing(orange stick),the other one is for fine polishing(white and green stick)
Posted Image

look at their flexibility and pliability.

Posted Image

choose a part at random
Posted Image

use the orange stick to polish
Posted Image

feel it is like Tamiya #600-800 polishing paper in a way,but more comfortable and easier when apply ,because the wider connection between the kit part and the stick makes the polishing work more efficient.Reduce about 50% of the boring polishing work time effecitvely.

take a look at the dust on after-polishing-work stick
Posted Image

magic result after wash it with water.(big suprise!)It means modelers may use the stick for more times!!!

Laurel, those look like just what I need. I'm not much on on-line ordering, so how long do you figure before they hit the LHSs in the states?

I tried those sticks on another white metal.Effect are great as always.Share with you.

step 1 choose an original part.Notice the mold lines and huge grains on the part
Posted Image

step 2 after purple (extra coarse)polishing stick (mold lines were removed mostly,but grains were still big)
Posted Image

step 3 after grey (Fine)polishing stick (deep and fine polishing,grains were smooth now)
Posted Image

step 4.5 ,4 after green side and white side of the polishing stick(after green side,the shine was a bit blurry.after the white side,the shine turned to be real metal shine!)
