Once I get to this phase, updates will become more frequent and the light at the end of the tunnel is all the more present. For most of my builds, 80% of the build is surface preparation with the repetitive sanding, priming, and filling cycle. As of last night, this is what Kanu looks like:

Weekend update. This weekend saw a good amount of work done on Kanu. Friday was spent sanding, Saturday I re-primed the sanded pieces, then Sunday saw some actual paint work. The red parts got the base coat of Finisher’s Silk Red. The upper piece of the dress still had a good amount of surface defects that I filled using light curing putty on Friday. The part was primed on Saturday, and the base coat was sprayed on Sunday.
