Welcome to the forum. The tools that you have are more than sufficient to complete the task. Don't bother using the undercoat plaster unless there are deep hollows to fill. You're going to need more than one bag of plaster. What type of finish plaster do you have? :)

do you come from Chard, Somerset the home of powered flight LOL.............
Yes indeed. John Stringfellow (not Peter's brother) invented a powered aircraft in 1848, ahead of the yanks in 1903. All done here in good old Chard.
It's about the only interesting fact about Chard other than Mr Blobby lived here for a while. Lol.

James Gillingham was from chard. Pioneered prosthetic limbs. On another note I'm also from Chard. Small world!!!
