  2. I’m having problems painting a colored area white, I’ve primed the area (both gray and white) but the under color still comes through. Can you pls help?

    • when painting white you’ll need to use white primer and be prepared to do a couple of coats.

  3. I wanna know how to properly use mark softer and mark setter. I’ve been trying it out for a bit and in my first attempts it ate the decal, what exactly did I do wrong?

    Reply
    • the mark setter goes on the plastic surface before the decal, the softer goes on once the decal is in place, but don’t use too much or move the decal if you can avoid it once the softer is on.

  4. The more I see Ryan’s “Ita” Raptor, the more I want to build something similar as well, but 1/48 scale really is looking too big for me. I notice there are 1/72 scale equivalent for all of Hasegawa’s “Idolmaster” series plane, but does anyone know if the quality of the decal on these 1/72 scale remains the same as the 1/48 variant?

  8. I have a couple questions. I am building a MG Gundam Deathscythe Hell kit and I have two sets of decals. One has a kind of clear back and the other has a kind of blue back but I don’t speak/read any Japanese so I was wondering if either are water decals. Also when I’m done I would like to put some kind of top coat on it. What kind of top coat would you recommend?
    Also I have noticed that you have a lot of duplicate posters hanging on the wall behind you in your episodes. There isn’t much in way of Gundam paraphernalia in the part of the USA that I’m from so would yall possibly send me some if you would be so kind? If you can’t or something then don’t worry about it. Thank you for your videos and your help.

    • @ Matthew one will be stickers and the other rub on transfers. The ones with the thin paper backing are the rub on dry transfers so handle with care.

  9. @luke: Ok but what about the other set of decals? I have one sheet of normal sticker that have the eyes and such and I have two sheets of decals. Are they both dry transfers or could one of them be water slides as well?
    Thanks for your help!

    Reply
    • @ Matthew one is just stickers, the other dry (rub on) transfers.

  10. I have a bit of a question. Do you guys still carry the Tamiya Thin Cement? I can’t find it anywhere on the site.

    Reply
  11. if i want to put on water slide decals, do i hav to use mark softer or mark setter or can i just slide it on and leave it be.

    Reply
    • @ ironhog you can just slide it on and let it be.
