  1. FYI - we can ship the aqua and figure lines of MRP to Canada since they are non-hazardous. We cannot ship (no reasonable cost shipping method to be specific because of the hazmat requirements) the solvent based MRP outside the US (including Canada) since it is considered hazardous for shipping (yes we think it is bizarre that a 1oz bottle of solvent based paint is a problem despite thousands of gallons of jet fuel on board, but we don't make the rules and regulations). Anyone shipping the regular solvent based MRP paint to Canada from the US through the mail is doing so illegally. If caught, they could be subject to big fines. Sprue Brothers Models LLC
  2. I usually use Future. It acts like decal glue, and when it dries, it pulls the decal down into panel lines, etc.
  3. Here is the manufacturer's direction on how to use: http://alclad2.com/how-to/
  4. My personal favorite is Alclad. Been using them for close to 20 years and never have had an issue. Gordon https://store.spruebrothers.com/category_s/2054.htm

  6. Sorry for the split posts but size limitations forced me to break it up to multiple parts.
  7. From the Hasegawa website on how to get parts: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/support/#buhin Please note that it is in Japanese. I used the Chrome browser which automatically translates it in to English which becomes:
  8. Please note that just because it is a water based paint does not mean it is not considered hazardous for shipping. There are certain USPS shipping methods that an airplane COULD be used to transport that class of mail - such as Priority Mail and First Class Mail. As a result if it possibly flying, nothing considered to be hazardous for shipping can be shipped via an "Air" method. We are not allowed to assume that a package will be trucked to destination based on its destination and origin. If it is a method that could fly, that method cannot be used legally even if it is going across the street. As we have seen plenty of times, packages get misloaded all the time, which is why they do not allow you to assume a Priority Mail package to your neighbor won't fly to it destination. I have never looked it up, but I have heard (I guess here I am being a rumor monger) that the fine for shipping a hazmat item improperly/illegally can be $10K to $50K. Hazardous could something that is defined as hazardous (usually not modelling paints) HOWEVER a modeling paint\glue\etc that has a hazardous characteristic (such as being flammable) would cause that item to be considered hazardous for shipping. Not to pick on this brand, but it is a really go example, is Tamiya acrylic paint. Even though it is an acrylic paint, it is still considered hazardous for shipping because of its flammability characteristic. I hope this makes sense. There is a lot of stuff out there in shipping that has gotten fairly complicated.

  10. The US Postal Service eliminated international surface mail back in I believe 2007. So my guess is Canada Post reciprocated. The Canadian shop is obeying the laws/rules/regulations as any haz mat type materials are not allowed to be mailed via a method that could be flown (doesn't matter whether it actually flies or not). For example, in the US, we cannot use Priorty Mail even if we are mailing to an address in town that we know will not get on an airplane. But, because of the method (that it could be flown), it cannot be used.
