Hi, what sandpaper grit do you guys use to sand/smooth edge, or to get rid of flash/moulding in place of a file? I would like to use sandpaper to reach those bothersome concave/circular areas, such as on the Hammerhead, but I dont know which grit would be fine enough. Any help would be appreciated, thank you
Why bother with sandpaper when the edge of a modelling knife or a file does it so much faster?
If you were going to use paper I'd probably use 600grit (depending on the size of the problem).

600 grit is still to coarse, it would take away any detail, If I used sandpaper (And I don't reccommend you do it, files/knives are MUCH better for removing flash), I would use 1200 grit.
i use 2400, 3600, and 8000 grit papers on plastics
i've got some 32000 grit lying around somewhere too...

For plastics, I tend to use around 600 grit. Maybe some 400 for a few first passes. Also get the wet/dry type as the paper last a good while. The finer the grit the less material is removed.
