ABOUT Mr. HOBBY AQUEOUS GUNDAM COLOR
Based on the water-based hobby color whose performance has been improved by the renewal, Gundam color will finally appear as a water-based version.
The color is the same as the Mr. color version of Gundam color, but it is a water-based hobby color with little solvent and mild odor, so it is ideal for users who are painting for the first time.
It can be used for both brush painting and airbrush painting.
In the popular water-based Gundam color series, colors specializing in the kit of "Mobile Suit Gundam Seed - Seed Destiny" will appear one after another!
The "Aqueous Gundam Color" series with the HUG part number is based on the "Aqueous Hobby Color".
Please use water or the special "Aqueous Hobby Color Thinner" for dilution.
The type of paint is different from the "Gundam Color" series of UG part numbers.
Color mixing is not possible.
Aqueous Hobby Color is a very safe paint which has a high degree of user friendliness.
Aqueous Hobby Color paint can be diluted with water if desired, while paint brushes can be cleaned and washed out in water.
Ensuring that this is before the paint is dry.
The solvent contained in Aqueous Hobby Color paint is very mild.
It provides a glossy texture and very good leveling qualities (i.e the smoothness of coated film of paint), resulting in a very good level of painted finish.
In particular, the gloss level achieved with the use of Aqueous Hobby Color gloss paints is excellent.
Gloss levels obtained using gloss coat Aqueous Hobby Colors can be adjusted by using H-40 Flat Base - mix approximately 5% of H-40 Flat Base to convert gloss colors to a matt finish, or 5 to 10% for a semi gloss finish.
The percentage of Flat Base used can be adjusted to vary the amount of gloss level obtained.
It is not necessary to dilute Aqueous Hobby Color for brush painting as a basic rule, but if using an airbrush to spray Aqueous Hobby Color, dilute the paint with 100 to 150% Mr.Aqueous Hobby Color Thinner (T-110 0r T-111).
When brush painting, generally 1 to 2 coats are recommended, and 2 to 3 coats when using an air brush.
If painting a light color over a darker base surface, more coats of paint may be required.
When painted on ABS resin parts, the paint penetrates into the resin and the parts become friable or develop cracks.
Check the instructions in the assembly manual or on the parts runner and try to avoid painting on "ABS resin parts".
