Default RE: AJ-2 Construction Revisited

Here's how to seal the surface and get it ready for primer.

Wash the surface of the fiberglass with liquid soap and water. Dry the surface. lightly sand the surface of the model with 220 grit sandpaper used dry. Then dust the surface to remove any excess material.

Apply a layer of lightweight Spackle. I use a squeegee to apply the material in a thin smooth layer.

The fuselage had some larger holes that were filled with a polyester type filler. Let this dry and sand smooth.

Lightweight Spackle was applied to remaining surfaces.

Allow the surface to dry for a couple hours and then sand the surface smooth with 220 grit sandpaper used dry.
