well just to make sure, I went down to my "workspace" (pretty much the entire
basement with some gundam cds in the stereo and models strewn around), picked up
the leg of my gp-01 kit that I'm finishing up, and ran it under water then tried
to rub the paint off. Nope, it stayed on.

I actually have been using a combination of the two - the testors paint ones are
a bit easier to manage when it comes to thinner spaces. It works quite well
actually. The non-thin line ones use paint.

I don't have the thin-line one (mine's on backorder from a comic store) but its
possible that it uses ink, like those pigma pens that micron puts out. as for a
sealer, well, I haven't done that much work with my kits but I don't see why it
wouldn't work. I'll let you guys now when it comes in the mail. In the meantime,
off to do more work...
