Looking for a Gundam Marker alternative? Try the Uni Posca line of paint pens made by Mitsubishi Japan. The operative word there is "paint", that's what comes out of the pen, not ink.
Working on this right now, a 1/48 F4F-4 Wildcat. First time for me to build a Hobby Boss kit and I have to say that I am pretty much impressed. Almost done with this, just need to put on decals, paint the propeller, add a flat coat then pigments... Holy Cow, I take it back, I still have a lot to do *snicker*

Hands down this is the best anime series I've watched this year. Then again, I'm not really actively looking so my selection is dearth *snicker*. If you're pushing midlife and trying to see what this "Gundam" is about or trying to convince somebody that Gundam is not just for kids, this here is what explains it all. BOOM! *mic-drop*.

Cutting off the masking tape from clear parts can be done more easier by holding it up against a light, as the lines can be seen more easily. I'd recommend using a desk lamp and not the ceiling light, as the latter will strain your neck. I use a fresh scalpel instead of an X-acto knife, not because it's better, but rather because it's more easily available to me.
