If you want to make it uber smooth you should put some spackle on the little grooves to fill them in then even it out with sanding, light sanding without a dremel or electrical tool is fine cause it sands off easily.

Man , it looks great, but it needs some sanding BIG time.
you'd think that wouldnt you, but actually, it is very smooth, just some dust on it, i probably will still do a little sanding

Sanding's not just about making things smooth, it helps with making things symmetrical. I see some things not lined up..

You really need to sand it and detail it. A LOT.
It maybe be smooth, as in not rough, but it is very.. I don't know how to put it, maybe bumpy?

When you rub your hand along it, does it feel like sandpaper (rough), smooth, but still bumpy , or like a table (smooth)? If it feels like anything but plain smooth, you need to sand more.

Maybe you should cut out a coke water bottle (the big ones) then put a one way mirror silver film on it, then maybe paint it with gold oil pant. It's what I'm doing.

It's too bumpy. As in, if it were flesh, it would be covered in sists. It's not flat. It looks like there are dunes on it. Not rough, but bumpy.
It could also use a lot of detail.
