Im building a trumpeter sa2 missile and the rocket comes in two halves. I used melted sprue and plastic cement to fill the gap and it worked pretty well. But what grades of sandpaper should I use on the seam line to smooth it out? I used 400,600,800,1000,1200,1500 in that order but are there specific grades that should be used ? or just keep going finer and finer to remove scratches?

Hunter, it sounds like you've already got the technique down based on the grits you listed. Keep using those, and then cover the missile with a leveling type primer that fills all the tiny micro abrasions and you should be good to go.
