Hi,
    Any ideas how I can make a sanding block. I'm building a cub from a kit from RCBazaar. The kit content is good but the manual is plain rubbish. No plans at all. Or any one selling sanding blocks. I need something like 24 inches for LE sanding.

I normally cyano a strip of sandpaper of the required grade to a rectangular block of wood (like a blackboard duster or smaller) and use it as a sanding block. I have different blocks with 80 grit, 120 grit, 240 grit and 400 grit. Once the sandpaper has lost its abrasive properties, it has to be replaced.

Since I do wet sanding on putty, I like to use the waterproof black 'wet and dry' emery paper instead of the regular yellow sand paper.

I've built the same model; the build log is posted here. 24" long sanding block? Never used more than 6", in over 50 different models Cheesy Cheesy 

You have lots of info from very knowledgeable people. Only addition is I use wood, and use drawing pins Smiley
