Hi all. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Gundam, and there are way too many things I don't know about finishings and paint jobs.
Anyways, I just found some time to start building an old non-grade Strike Freedom Gundam, and I'm concerned with photo-degradation (a.k.a. "yellowing") of the plastic due to sunlight and fluorescent light exposure.
My question is, is painting up the figure the only way to protect it from UV, or can I just spray a layer of flat coat on it?
Does the Gunze Sangyo - Mr.Hobby Color - Solvent-based Arcylic Spraycan - No.30 Flat Clear (Flat) that XL-shop sells have UV protection?
I've heard of Krylon UV protectant spray, but I'm not sure if that's safe to use on plastic.
My main concern here is UV protection and sticker protection, since I'm quite satisfied with the quality of the plastic for the Strike Freedom.
A thousand thanks for any advice!
Mr.Hobby Color - Solvent-based Arcylic Spraycan - Super Clear do have a "UV Cut" for UV protection use..
But I'm not sure about Flat coat.
To me, if really want to protect the model kit from the UV...
just dun display it near the window & direct under the spot light...
I really dun think that the UV protection spray can really do 100% help on the UV protection.
BTW, xl-shop din sell the spray can, U need to find it some where else.
