Estes Skydart II #3229 Build, Part 12, Primer / Filler
The rudder in the back is before sanding, the rudder in front is after sanding with 400 grit.
Where some builder look at primer as a paint prep, this primer/filler is used for a final wood grain fill.
Enlarge the picture to see some of the gray filler left in the remaining wood gran.
The total filler weight was 0.23 oz.
Notice how most all the primer/filler is sanded off. For me it's not so much for priming the surface, I use it more for filling any remaining wood grain. After a single coat of CWF and sanding there is usually some remaining grain lines left.
