Re painting over cloth

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Several years ago I purchased a 13 sig spacewalker. It was painted in non scale colours, dark blue. I had a slight mishap and had to do some repair work. I masked off some of the original paint to finish off the repair work and when I pulled off the masking some of the old original paint pulled off the fabric covering. Looks like deep scratches every 1/8 to 14 inch apart and 90 degs to the direction the tape was pulled off. I was not tooo concerned at the time and just gave a second coat of paint and have been flying it that way for a couple of years. Well now I want to repaint it to scale colours but do not know what i should do to hide the marks. Since it is cloth over open areas sanding would be difficult if not impossible.

I am looking for suggestions as to what I should do hide the marks. It was painted with a Canadian Tire enamel . Also will the dark blue change the colour of the yellows and reds that is typically seen on spacewalkers, by the way the wing are white and I am afraid that the new colours will show differently on the wings and fuse??

Any ideas?
