I have been buffing the model parts. I bought this stuff from Brodak; Meguiars Swirl Remover.
What's the correct way to use it? The abrasive effect is allmost homeopathic and it leaves the surfaces sticky. I tried it with my buffing machine and ir sure shines nicely but only untill I wash tve parts with soap water.
Is it more like wax?
Swirl remover is actually a glaze, not really intended to remove sanding scratches or anything. It is basically intended to use as a last step to "fill" the swirl marks left by polishing compound. I use a similar product right before appearance judging. I use a microfiber hand towel/washcloth to apply a small amount and disperce it over the surface, then go back and buff it similar to how you would in fact use wax. There is not really any cutting agents in this product, its mechanism of function is to fill the micro sized marks left by the abrasive in polishing compound thus leaving a more uniform surface to produce better reflections.
