Sanding sealer

Post by River Lin » Wed Jun 13, 2018 9:20 am

Hi all.
I have some ex SAR waggon kits that I am putting together. They are made from MDF so what sanding sealer do members reccomend before painting?

Hi David,

I use this Sanding Sealer from HMG Paints and it’s far cheaper and very quick drying, plus you don’t need a lot, has it goes along way. Far better than Shellac in my opinion.
