Yes... Surprisingly the addition of brown ink gives that final effect.

... I was just awaiting to have other sanding jobs to do!

It's the same for my D.VII rudder: I'm awaiting to have to airbrush primer on the MiG's... ;)

Primer airbrushed. Each sanding stage provokes new holes in the resin... Enough with that; it's bothering. I will find a solution during the painting phase, probably with the oil paint.

Another solution- coat it with thin metal foil, like bare metal foil. This will isolate all holes.
