3D printed models

I’m new to the world of 3D printed models. I have a couple of questions:

1) Do they need to be washed before priming, they way a Resin kit does?

2) Do they sand well? Or will it require a course sand paper?

Thanks

Is there a reason nothing has been done? There has been active posting since Friday.

Re: Wonderfest Photos

Thanks for the pictures! Out of curiosity who made the U.S.S. Hood and Repulse? Was it Admiral Buck? They look awesome like all of his builds. I'm not a JJ Trek hater, but Admiral Bucks designs are always incredible and would have been great updates for the TOS design aesthetic.

Metalizers and Acrylics

Question about using Testors metalizer sealers

1: will it harm an Acrylic paint undercoat?

2: Will it give said Acyric paint that is flat, a metalic finish.

I'm totally new to using metalizers and not sure how to use them.
