My entire pack is 3D printed. I use a Creality CR10. you can see pics on my build thread (GB1 pack from a little bit of everything) That said, I have been able to get nice results from just pre-sanding, not too aggressively, with 120 grit, then using high build sandable primer and finally wet-sanding everything with 220 grit paper, then put on the top coat of whatever paint you need.
It is also important to have parts made from high quality 3D models, and printed on a machine that has been tuned well. Before I got my settings tweaked in, some of my prints needed some serious help,and I still have lots of room to improve.
I have no experience with Benofkent, but I would hope that if he's selling parts, that they are of a pretty good quality to start with.
The other suggestions put up here are all good too. Every one is a decent technique to have in your toolbox.
Good luck, and have fun.
