    Hi guys, I have a problem which I would like to get your insight on. So I’m painting the HGBF Sengoku Astray and I have a problem with painting the parts separate colors with…

    Hi guys, I have a question regarding top coats. First off, could the Tamiya bottles be used as a top coat to protect paint and decals? Second and more importantly, could I use…

    • in my experience, those top coats are good for anything, just that whenever you flat top coat your kits, you should always in a warm weather or having warm, bright sun around so that we can avoid frosting effects which is not good for your kit. Always use thinner so that it will thin out the topcoats for better results.

    • Awesome, thank you.

    • The Mr. Super Clear is a lacquer based top coat, so you’ll have to keep the same precautions in mind.
      Stickers and dry transfers aren’t that weak as water slides, so a normal coat on top of them will work fine.
      The Tamiya XF-86 is normally used to be mixed with gloss colors, or gloss clears to get a flat paint/clear. When painted directly on a…[Read more]

    How about when spraying on bare plastic and on Gundam Markers, Copik modeler markers, and the like? I want to spray it on some RG kits but, am worried that the lacquer spray will kill them. πŸ˜›

    Well that’s good to hear then. One more thing, how does TS-80 effect decals?

    • If you don’t spray the first layer on too thick and let it dry before the next one, it won’t effect them at all. Should you spray it on too thick, the decals will start to wrinkle

    Awesome, this actually helped! I haven’t tried it yet but, I’ll try 70% thinner, 30% paint; adding 5-10% retarder.

    Would you happen to know if it is ok to use Tamiya TS-80 flat as a top coat?

    • Glad I could be of some help πŸ™‚
      I wouldn’t recommend it. The Tamiya spray cans are solvent based paints, in other words, they are lacquers. I had mixed results in the past spraying lacquers on top of acrylics. Sometimes it went well, other times the paint started to crack. I guess it had to do with the curing period of the acrylic and how heavy…[Read more]

    Hi guys, I recently bought Tamiya paint retarder to slow down the drying the process and hopefully even out the paint layer. My question is what should the thinner to paint to retarder ratio be and, in what order should I mix them in? Please and thank you!

    • That’s a rather tricky question in terms of paint to thinner ratio. Most paints from even the same brand have a different viscosity. It’s mostly trial and error before you get a consistency that works for you and your airbrush. The thicker the paint, the higher you should set your pressure.
      A good starting point for acrylics like Tamiya is 60%…[Read more]

    • Sorry for my late reply, hope it reaches you in time.
      If you let the Gundam Marker dry for at least 24 hours and then use the same technique as in spraying two very light coats, give it a drying time of 10min between coats before laying on a thick all covering coat it’ll be fine.
      As for spraying it on bare plastic, did it in the past myself,…[Read more]

    Hi guys, I’m looking for a file set that would help me remove nubs. I’m working on HGs and RGs if that helps. I also pain the HGs but, not the RGs. Would you happen to recommend a great file set (brand and model)

    Please and thank you!

    • I’m currently using the Tamiya Basic File Set (Fine Double Cut). I find these come in handy for really big nubs or when sharpening a blade. The only down side is I have to use sand paper after using them. Even tough Tamiya states them to be “Fine Double Cut” they still are rather coarse
      In other words, they remove nubs really quick, but expect to…[Read more]

    I see. I really want all of the magazines with the Honoo series so I’ll try asking my suppliers here if they could get all of them from Jan 2014 til today.

    Does anyone know which issue of Hobby Japan this is from? I’m trying to find all of the magazines that show Build Fighters Honoo modified kits.
    • I’m not sure which magazine that image is from but the custom set is included in the upcoming October(?) Hobby Japan magazine.

    • Build Fighters Honoo is serialised in Hobby Japan so you’d have to buy all the issues published in the last year or so. But if you’re only interested in the Freedom Gundam Feder you could just get Hobby Japan October 2015 when it comes out next month.

    Hi guys, I have an airbrush cleaning question. I just got this new airbrush and was wondering if it is ok to clean it with industrial strength acrylic lacquer thinner. My worry is that if it is too strong, it might damage my airbrush. Any info on the matter is appreciated! πŸ˜€
    • if you’re not sure of what’s in it and want to be safe, don’t let the airbrush soak in it for long. some people like to leave the cleaners in the airbrush or soak all the parts for a few hours or overnight for some serious cleaning but it might be bad for the seals depending on the cleaner components. it’s always better to clean while the paint is…[Read more]

    • I use 99% rubbing alcohol to clean my airbrush. It works for me pretty well.

    • Ye i also use 99%alcohol it works very well i strongly suggest not using something industrial like because it could destroy an expensive airbrush like that

    • cool cool cool. Thank you πŸ™‚

    Should I get this kit? My local Hobby Shop has both the Tallgeese II and III and no one has bought it yet but, I’m not sure if I want to get them.
