You will need Hobby Cement to remove seamline, I use Tamiya brand but you could use other brands too and…

First, prepare your part and hold it using a tools you comfortable with, I usually use alligator clips on one parts.

Combine and then press it as hard as you can

*NOTE: BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE CEMENT OR YOU WILL HAVE A BIG MESSY TROUBLE.

Then clip it using any tools you have and LEAVE IT FOR A DAY, yes a day. Or 12 hours minimal if you’re not a patient person like me :p

After the cement is dry (24 hours later) you will see something like this.

Then you will need an art knife or cutter

Next process is sanding, I use 400 and 1000, but you could use 1500 for more softer result

First, sand with 400 and then continue with 1000/1500 to get a smooth result.

For special case like this, you will need plastic scribber, I use Hasegawa plastic scribber.

To give back the detailing loss because of sanding process (You dont need to do this if you sand a smooth non detailed parts)

final look before painting would be like this, of course you could do better than me now ^^;

The next step would be painting this part either using spray can or Airbrush.

and voila! the end result would be like this after priming and before painting.

Tips:

1. if you still see some seamline gap, you could fill it with putty, I also use Tamiya putty to fill the gap, and then sand it before paint.

2. you could still see some thin stripes, but if you’re sure the surface is smooth (like picture above), usually the line will be gone after painting.

Good luck!
