You can probably knock down some of the paint edges along the masked water line, very carefully with fine sanding paper, before adding a gloss coat, otherwise, maybe leave it, as sanding paint will require adding a gloss coat to look ok again. There is also a danger of sanding through the paint if you also sand the flat areas with thinner layer of paint, which is ofc undesirable.

Mmm. I've got this one as well, somewhere on my shelf of half finished. Perhaps I can find some inspiration here?

You think 1500er Sandpaper can do the Job?

I am not sure. Also, best add some masking tape around the hull, so you don't scratch the paint elsewhere. As I commented before, I am assuming that you will add a gloss coat, else, probably not a good idea, sanding plain paint tend to look, bad.

Later i saw these Edges comes from the Hull Part, maybe the mark to cut the Hull for a waterline model.
