Painting/Priming / a possible enamel thinner/ brittle plastic
« on: September 16, 2007, 09:48:14 PM »
hello again!! sorry to make a new thread if i'm not supposed to , but I am scared to post in the other threads reguarding similar problems, because I don't want to dig up an old thread and break any forum rules.

Anyway, I picked up something called "naptha" or "naphtha" at the hardware store, because it says on the container that it can thin enamel.(i only plan to use it for a panel line wash.) I tested it and it mixes well with enamel, and it doesn't affect acrylic paint :-).it had no imediate effect on the plastic, but after soaking a piece of sprue in it for a couple hours, the sprue  became seriously brittle and shattered :twitch:. I don't want to spend all the time building and painting a kit to ruin it at the end :(.  So, would it be a bad idea to use this for a wash, or is it safe? has anyone ever used the stuff?

P.S. Can you use turpenoid to thin enamel? i have heard about FF's satisfaction with the stuff, and i could get it from michael's art supply.

Kit Specifics / cutting braided fiberglass tubing (gundam ver. Ka)
« on: April 20, 2007, 07:53:04 PM »
i was so happy when my friend returned from japan with my Mg z'gok and Gundam ver. ka in his arms :D :lol: :razz:. he had been kind enough to offer to buy me something(that i paid for) in japan.

well, anyway, i was wondering what the best method to cut  the fiberglass tubing included for the back of the knees.  the kit has just enough, and i didn't want to risk ruining it :(. the long strip needs to become 4 13mm. pieces, as clearly stated in the instructions, but it says nothing, even in japanese about cutting it.

i figured someone would have experience, and your answers are appreciated. :lol:

Kit Specifics / differences in MG Z'Gok/ MG Char's Z'gok
« on: March 27, 2007, 06:31:30 AM »
My Question is about any differences in z'gok and char's z'gok.i am not sure which to buy, because they might not be the same kit with different colors. for example, char' zaku is different from the regular zaku, besides the color change. all i want to know is if there are any differences between Z'gok and Char's z'gok. :D
thanks,
