Trimming a moulding Dscn1619

I have marked the top of the hull on this moulding. As you will see there is a lot of material to remove Rolling Eyes I think this is an amateur moulding - there is lots of rubbish attaching to the mould, but that is OK it will sand off. 

What I want some advice on is removing that excess. Its an awful lot to sand Shocked Shocked Can I use a cut-off disc in my Dremel to remove the bulk of it? Any other suggestions?

I have to agree the cut off wheels below are an excellent choice for removal of the material, then use a mix of sanding drums and blocks to finish.

Thanks David - I have some of those Thumbup I wasn't sure if these or the abrasive type would be best.
