I wasn't too impressed with the size of the Mk II. Was this your first MG
kit?

It helps if you cut it by 1 or 2mm longer than the length suggested by the
manual, but after all is said and done gluing it works best.

Do you paint over the parts after sandpapering them? That is the only way
I know to get rid of the runner marks (painting over). If you can still
see them after painting, then you need to work on your sanding. Try a 2 or
3-tiered sanding, starting with a rougher grain and work your way down to
ultrafine grain grade sandpaper.
