Car Body Filler & Laser Cut Acrylic Sheets to Build a Tower Model

This is a method that I use often to create more curved 3Dimensional shapes accurately using 3D digital models as reference and starting point. By 'slicing' the model horizontally I can create layers, in this occasion I sliced it in 4mm layers, so using 4mm acrylic I can stack each layer up until I have the basic shape at 4mm increments. This is the stage where I then fill the increments with car body filler and eventually sand the surface until I reach the edge on each layer, avoiding to sand much of the acrylic. After sanding it to the required shape I prime it and sand it at least 2 or 3 times until there is an ultra smooth surface which eventually takes on the final coat of paint completing the process.
