I'm working on a Sherman with a Pershing turret I put the upper and lower turret together My problem is now that I've filled and sanded the seam I've lost some of the casting that's been molded on What's the best way to get it back without over doing it? Example making the casting too rough I checked on the forums and didn't find any answers Thanks in advance

One method is to spread some liquid glue on both sides of the seam, a small area at a time, then use an old short paint brush to stipple the softened plastic. Blend the damaged area, from your original seam repair, into untouched part of turret. After your work hardens, lightly sand the area to smooth the stipples and blend everything. I hope you can understand my babbling.

To add to Ranger74 you can do the larger tooling marks with you dremel tool and different bits by lightly bouncing them off the surface. Best to pratice first to get the feel for it.
