I've found that paint covers most superficial scratches. If you don't plan to paint, gentle sanding with a 600 grit (or finer) sanding stick or paper works well. A real handy tool is the nail buffing sanding stick available at any drugstore (e.g. Rite Aid, Walgreen's) for $2.00 or so. The fine grit does a nice job of polishing plastic - and fingernails!

Question on removing scratches & scuffs on parts
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, February 22, 2003 12:58 PM
Have a few pieces of new kits with light but numerous scuf marks and scratches from parts rubbing against each other in the box probably during shipping. This is a flat black jet and is molded in color, so I was hoping not to have to paint it, but now I am unsure what to do. Is there anyway to buff out the scratches and clean it up without painting? If I need to paint, will the paint cover the scratches or do I need to sand/buff first? I have completed a lot of kits, but am new to buffing or sanding, so any help would be welcome. Thanks.
