I've got a question.
I recently purchased the Roadbuster head to put on the old Universe Roadbuster figure (CD Hot Shot), and I was wondering if typically you need to sand the product before painting and applying it?
It feels rough to the touch, but I've never ordered from them before, so I don't know if this is the norm or not.
Also, Primer then paint? Or just go to paint afterwards?
If you ordered it in any of the nylons, it will be rough like that all the way down to its very core. It is a characteristic of the material and the way the granules is fused in the 3D printing process. Absolutely prime it first. The porosity will just soak up paint. You may have some bleeding issues along edges as well, once again due to the granularity if the nylon prototyping material.
