So, I'm a rather new person to mecha model hobbies, and I figured if I had a question about such things, there's no better place than here. I definitely have no problem with construction, but what I can never seem to get past is finishing with a flawless surface on my models. What do you guys use to get rid of blemishes/leftover plastic? Do you paint over them, or use a tool that files them till they're flat? Also, what tools do you use to simply remove each piece from the trays? I (luckily) haven't had many breaks when trying to remove them, but they never seem to come out looking to hot (still have plastic dust/edges/bumps on them after removing). To note, I use a knife to saw away the pieces from the tray very slowly. I'm not sure if this is the right method or not.

Any help would be much appreciated. Btw, I love all of your pictures and finished models, everyone. Makes me wish I had the money to buy more.
