Try Elmers Fill N Finish Putty for Light Wood (comes
in a white tub with an orange lid). Mix some in a
little water (very little) to make an elmers glue
consistency paste. Paint on with a brush, sand and
repeat until satisfied. (Brush washes out with water
and no bad smells). Prime coat and sand the rocket
prior to the finishing coats of paint and the spiraling
stripes you'll create, will go away.
I used this method on my Sidewinder and it looks great!
