Sanding

Sanding
Sanding and sanding... the time went flying :) Here at SpotModel, sanding actually means "that placid lapse of time it takes to eliminate irregularities and/or defects on the surfaces of our beloved models with the new sandpaper sponges by SpotModel". Or, as the song says,

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito (step by step, tenderly tender)
Lo vamos lijando, poquito a poquito (we go sanding by, little by little)
Y es que esa belleza es un rompecabezas (because that beauty is a puzzle)
Pero pa montarlo aqu tengo la pieza (but here I have the part for puttin' it together)

Sorry, it seems incredible: the "despacito" even slipped into SpotModel :) But when you put it that way, it actually sounds like an hymn to scale modeling, doesn't it? :D

I sand with SpotModel, and you? :D

P.S. Don't hate us too much if, from now on, you can't sing anything else while you sand your models... X-D
