Yes, once the paint has completely dried, you can sand it smooth and repaint.

But do make sure you let it dry well and completely. If you try to sand it and it's still wet underneath, it'll come off in little rolly snakey boogers and leave uneven pits in the paint that are tough to sand out later.

So THAT'S the technical name of those things. ;)

I have had this happen myself. I follow the below carefully scripted procedure:

1) Get mad and swear for a while

2) Put the rocket away for a month or so because I am disgusted with myself.

3) Now that the paint is all dry, (and I am over my funk) I sand, and re-paint.

An alternative step 2: punish the thing by stuffing the bigest motor you can in it and if it is not lost, proceed with step 3.
