Uhm, that's y u have to wash it with the soap u use to do the dishes; then to sand it n to put some primer on it =). If u do that, almost every single type of enamels n acrylics will work fine.

I don't know what the Gunpla people make these models out of but they just hate model paint with a passion, even with a base coat on them

yea i have run into the same problems. i have used krylon primer on gundams for kitbashing and it seams to work well. have you tried washing the parts before painting. sometimes oils from manufacturing can cause paint problems.

I haven't yet, but I did just pick up some new kits over the weekend that are still on the sprue, I will take that advice and try doing that.
