Building continues.

Today's issue is that the nitrocellulose paint has a few spots where it is cracked and a few spots where it seems like there are little bubbles, some that popped.

Are these things that will go away as I continue to paint and sand, or is this a fundamental issue that I'm doing something wrong?

New nitro coats melt into previous coats, so just keep spraying and once you have done all your coats level sand, if there are any imperfections you can either spray more coats or sand them out.

I'm on about 4 or 5 coats now. Sounds like you're suggesting around 10 coats?

Depends on whether the lacquer has been thinned, how heavy the coats are that you're spraying and generally what it looks like, which only you can look to see if you like how thick it is.

But yes 10 coats sounds about right for nitro.
