The 3D print that I got had a circular hole in the bottom, so I ended up using Apoxie sculpt to fill it, as well as some deeper shift lines. After all the sanding, I primed, painted and then put gloss clear coat on. In total I probably spent over three hours on it, but it turned out ok. I'm still in awe being able to hold this in my hands when all I could do as a kid was rewind the movie over and over again. My only complaint is that I wish it was bigger, but this will do.
