During this stage, we take a model that comes to us right out of the mold. We sand it and prep its surface so that it will accept paint or any other special surface treatments that would be applied to it. We take special care to sand down mold marks and smooth out the rough edges. This step must be done so that paint or surface treatments will adhere to your model. If your model is prepared correctly, the final model paint is less likely to chip or peel in transport, or react to significant changes in temperature. Ensure your models are preserved well beyond the manufacturing process by enlisting our ASaP Model Painting Team to properly prepare them before they are painted, or special effects are applied to them.
