Hey guys. Like the title says, I just finished my MG Exia. I decided to change up the color scheme a bit since I wasn't too fond of the original colors. I ran into some problems such as paint scraping off whenever I change pose. I put on 2 layers of topcoat, but my tamiya acrylic paint still scratches so easily :mad:. One of the biggest problem I ran into was that some areas seem to have micro-cracks after I applied the final flat topcoat. It kind of looks darker in these area I'm not sure why some areas have the problem and others don't. I don't know if its the temperature since Chicago's weather changes too often throughout the day. Has anyone else had this problem?

Did you wash the kitin saop and water before you painted it and did you undercoat it?

Probably lack of prep work, if you didn't sand all the parts down and wash them before painting the primer may not have adhered properly.
