Good advice Dr.Corzo. I found out that many fillers work, but like you said, you want to get it done whith the least count of application/sanding steps. I use two, split second and glazing putty. Which 3 do you use?

I finished painting the bottom of the wings with Duplicolor Gloss Black. After a day of drying I took a look and saw a few spots where the paint didn't flow together and left what looks like a fine mesh. These spots where not always on top of an area that I repaired, but I know I had sanded the entire wing. I cleaned the wings with a rag and a very light soapy water mix and then again with just water. I don't know what caused the spots but I'm not going redo them. I can now also see the areas that I should have applied some more filler and sanded. Next time, I'm going to use a grey primer first so I can see any low/high spots and fix them before I apply the final coat.

Scotty-
Did you wear gloves when handling the wings pre-painting??
Some of those spots look like they could possibly be oily finger prints...
You won't see the blems when specked out!

I definitely plan on taking everyone's advise for the next project like this. Some of those spots appear to be from the Icing not sticking to the paint and others are most likely my greasy paw prints. Oh well. I'm not too worried as I plan on using the black as a background for air brushing some Ghost Blue Flames.

Hopefully, the top will come out much better after I wet sand and polish it up.
