You are Welcome Ron... Yeah it is totally crazy what all can be printed. I have been pushing the limits with a few things I have been drawing up just to see what I can and can't have printed. I would do as Michael mentioned and probably just primer and sand, then repeat as needed I know that the super glue is hard as a rock and sucks sanding, Plus you don't want to loose any details. Take your time and not rush anything, I am sure you will do an awesome job on it.
Ron... Awesome body, going to be a killer build. Now this body doesn't feel like Resin because the material is actually Nylon. They start out with Nylon Powder and sinter the powder layer by layer with a laser. You will want to clean the body by washing it in warm water with some dawn. and to seal you can you use some thin superglue or you can primer with some high build primer, sand and repeat. either way you are going to have to prep the body with sanding. The reason you are seeing the circle like pattern in the body is from the laser doing its thing to bond the material together. It also depends on the orientation of the part in the printer on how the layers are built up. Here are a few youtube videos that TDR Innovations have done to clean and seal some of their items that you may find helpful. Superglue seal only

Steve.... I just stumbled across this build. I am glad to hear that my Army Vega F/C has inspired you. You are off to a great start on this one. Looking Good. I think you should of put this build in the Drag Racing section . Keep up the great work and I look forward to more progress on this.
This is going to be a killer build. Looking great so far with all of the parts. Did you machine the Coilovers, Valve Covers, Rack and Pinion and pulleys yourself or who did you get them from. They are very nice piece of works.
Michael.. If they aren't responding you should try Coast Airbrush out of Southern California. Here is their link: http://www.coastairbrush.com/categories.asp?cat=44 Once you go here you can click on which line you want... for example Pear Base Coats. Then you can pick which color and what size... 1oz, 2oz, 4oz, 8oz Pricing depends on the color but on average the 1oz is $5.95, 2oz is $8.95, 4oz is $16.95, 8oz is $32.00. I personal buy them not reduced because I prefer to reduce my own paints. Anyways hope this helps.
