The user can use coarse grits on pieces that require less precision in the sanding. The sanding block is made from EVA material that is soft and flexible, perfect for sanding curved edges. The grits are color coded, making it easy to distinguish. Grits are labeled clearly at the back, allowing users to choose their tools without hassle. With three thickness to choose from, it is versatile for any situation. Every set comes with 2 of each thickness for each grit. The user is able to cut the sponge into their desired size or use the product immediately. Freely customize to your desired size. Use your first and middle finger to hold the sponge. Apply force with your index finger for maximum effect. Made from memory foam, the sponge always goes back to its original shape.
My favorite sponges. Durable, cheap, and easy to use. Can't go wrong
I ordered the two combo sets. Each set comes with a nice carrying case, and 5 grits each with 6 strips measuring about 80mm in length. Each grit set has two of each thickness: 2mm, 3mm, & 5mm. Each strip is single sided and is made of a firm foam material. The strips can be cut down easily.
Whether or not it is cheaper to buy sandpaper in bulk and make your own, it's hard to get that clean precise edge on the sticks and the durability. This can offer some finer resolution of sanding over home made solutions.
The carrying case I received had damage to one of the latching notches. It is to be expected due to handling conditions from carriers. Since the case comes in a sealed box, it would be ridiculous to expect the Mecha Warehouse team to open and inspect each one then reseal.
Of course, if you're buying this, gluing it back together would not be out of the question for most modelers.
If you receive a very broken case, or cannot repair it, the "DSPIAE Storage Box: Five Compartment Storage Box" sold on this site for 2.99 can serve as a replacement since it is the exact same case, but without the labeling for each grit.
To give you an idea of why you would buy this over anything else: I cut small strips off each stick, grab it with sturdy tweezers then use that small piece to sand off nubs or seams in tight or recessed areas. The foam is sturdy enough to provide the leverage needed. Other sanding sticks don't have the needed surface area to grab with tweezers or are too big.
Doesn't matter if you're advanced or a beginner, having a good set of sanding sponges is a must. They come neatly packaged with different sizes.
