Paint, sand, fill, paint sand fill

I have been busy sanding, filling and painting the DRD shell. The process started with wood filler and is now at the drywall mud stage.

The grit of the sand paper has become quite fine now and then, once it appears to be smooth, painting a matte white finish of gesso shows up the imperfections that you may or may not want to actually see. It is amazing how many there are.

Here is the DRD side view, right before the next sanding stage. This is really the bit I do not like. Not only is it messy but it also takes so long to do.
Knowing when to say that it’s enough sanding is really hard to do. This is what it looks like. I have just added more filler and I think hope this will be my last layer of filler.
