Technically, a #4 is considered a "smoothing" plane. As kennyk pointed out, a longer plane will make it a little easier, but it still comes down to subtitles of technique. Just running a longer plane back and forth won't accomplish it either.

Also, use a freshly sharpened blade iron. That'll make a difference.

This kind of work is what separates a quality plane (and setup) from a lesser quality one.
