After priming, more putty & sanding needed here.

Rather than using my usual Model Master or Tamiya spraycan primer, I decided to try the Model Master primer from a jar again thru my airbrush. Last time, I used it with Tamiya enamel thinner and it was not very robust. This time I've used the Testors thinner & it seems to work much better.
