Sanded Down Corner Reinforcements

Tonight I spent some time sanding down the outside corner reinforcements on the foot shells that I glued in last night.

Starting with 150 grit sand paper, I was able to get the surface pretty smooth.

400 grit sand paper finished the job nicely. The top seam is imperceptible.

I sanded down all eight corners that I glued in last night.

I'm happy with how this worked out. The reinforcements are holding tight, and they do seem to lend structural integrity to the corners. I need to identify other candidates for reinforcement, and the rest will be filled with Evercoat.

This is going to take a little while, but then, what part of the build doesn't?
