Paint Blob! FIX

We've all been there - The paint coverage is great except for one little raised blob!
Sure, you could sand it down and spray the entire model again, but that would add weight and you run the risk of another small mishap.

Enlarge the picture, look right above and a little right of the launch lug.
With a sharp knife and light pressure, shave off the raised blob without removing any paint beside it. It should take a few light passes of the knife to cut it down to the surrounding surface.

Go back over the area with some polishing compound with a damp soft cloth. Do two or three polishes.

The fixed area will only be visible if you were really looking for it under a bright light. Sometimes you luck out and a decal covers the cleaned up spot.
