I have a number of micro files, some sanding sticks that are almost worn out, and a few pieces of testors sand paper, but I need some help with choosing some good basic sanding tools for 1/48 aircraft. Anything that you think I need to get a decent job done. Perhaps a good kit that contains a good variety to get you started?

If you want to save some cash forget Testors, Tamiya, who-evers "hobby" sandpaper and visit your local Wal Mart. 3M wet or dry sandpaper in the automotive section is better stuff at a better price. From 80 grit the whole way down to 2000 they have it. With name brand hobby specific sandpapers your paying mostly for their name on the package.
