  Well, the classic answer is "no", you have to putty, sand prime and
completely cover over the sprue-scars. In reality, for _certain_
kinds/colors of plastic, you can sand the 'bump' down, and then apply a
little dab of clear-coat (future floor wax) which fills-in the scar and
blends it into the rest of the surface. Alternately, if you're feelin'
lazy, you can dab just a touch of drybrushed paint of the same color over
the scar area and at least from arm's-legnth away it will look okay. But
as always, the best solution is to repaint the entire damn thing.
