one thing they don't tell.. if you use same paint for the color of the body (tamiya acrylic) then you will wast you kit with this way.

I use this way, but I use Model Master acrylic paint and I thin it about 1/4 (1paint, 4 water) basicly, the paint is so thin that it goes in the panel line and never get out..

I also have a gundam marker, but for some reason, it don't work very well

I find gundam marker is very hard to work with! I am using Faskolor color:http://www.parmapse.com/faskolor.asp I use it for any kind of paints, takes about 20 mins to set, 24 hrs to completely dry! Make mistakes, not problem, just clean the mess with a wet cloth! If the result is not as good, peel off all the black paints, and start again!

You use lexan paint for models?
That stuff goes on dull looking, how do your models look?

Faskolor paints are made for lexan R/C bodies and are really not the ideal thing to paint a 1/24 model with.

I use Tamiya Enamel paint. Mistake... clean it off with enamel thinner, but the color that you had spray is still there... enamel paint have another good point...dry fast and no brush mark. If there are chance, try it.

Are you sure? I used Tamiya Enamel (semi-gloss black) for detailing. The spray color on the body is Tamiya Lacquer Spray (Italian red). When I made mistakes and used Tamiya Enamel Thinner to do the cleaning, I can see the color of the body paint on my cotton bud!!! Please help!

I also had this problem , i'm not sure why,
I think tamiya enamel thinner must've contain some laquer thinner as well.
