Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Mr dissolved putty VS tamiya basic putty
« on: October 19, 2007, 09:06:18 AM »

Does any one use me dissolved putty, hob about the result and application compare to tamiya basic putty. I'm having some problem sanding while removing seam lines in some difficult places, can Mr dissolved putty help?

i'm having a problem while coating with future for painting the panel lines.
I use tamiya flat blue, after i finished painting i want to coat it using FFA for panel lines, but it turns out the color have change. At first i think because the FFA is clear so there will be a slight color change, but as i mix FFA with tamiya Flat base (30% tamiya flat base) unthinned, i still can't get the original flat color. after the FFA coat the color change and it doesn't have a deep flat color like it used to. When i tried adding more Tamiya flat base i noticed white spot on the surface. What is wrong?
Is it the flat paint and the flat paint + FFA coat mixed with tamiya flat base doesn't produce same color? And how do you make the FFA layer became as flat as possible without the white spots?
Thank you

hi, i'm having problem in coating the paint into flat

I'm using FFA + flat base tamiya acrylic, and i following the tutorial, mike said that mix up to 30% for flat or dull, but although i'm mixing little by little it never came like i wanted it:deep and flat color like when i added the flat base directly to the paint, but like semi gloss. If i add more tamiya acrylic it became white spot(like to much flat base).
The flat base is like white mud??? and it separate the clear liquid like oil, i stir before using.

please help me, is there something wrong?

Painting/Priming / Making a test subject

hi, I'm trying to make a test part(to spray test before the real thing) and i notice that using future acrylic floor you can easily rub off the acrylic paint.
What i'm asking is can you rub of enamel paint and primer easily if you coat the part with FFA before.

It become like this:
1. The part
2. FFA layer
3. Tamiya/gunze primer
4. tamiya paint

can it really be strip clean because the FFA layer?

i don't know if this help but you can clean tamiya acrylic pain in just simple cloth detergent, after about 5 hours(i usually leave it one night)the paint is gone well about 98%. if you prime it with tamiya i don't see any difficulties(you have to rub it a little because sometime there are some paint left), i don't know if you use gunze primer(never use them)
it's relatively cheaper and less dangerous for our precious kit  :-)
i'm still looking for an easy way to clean enamel paint though.

hi, i have some question about priming the kit before we paint them.
1. do you have to sand them because i'm using tamiya bottled primer and the primer leaves some  mess on the parts(you can fell the rough texture like orange skin) so after i sand the it became smooth, but there are many area that are hard to sand. should i change to tamiya primer can?
2. How much primer do you use to build 1 HG gundam?
3. Do you think it's a good idea to use the airbrush instead spraying directly from the can?
