I actually thought about changing my username to'Captain Friendzone' - cos it's ironic yeah? ;)

@  Smokey : (05 May 2016 - 01:47 PM)

@Paladin: Yep, that's what a friendzone is.

@  Locoman : (05 May 2016 - 01:00 PM)

I knew someone who got put in the calzone by a girl. Tomato sauce burns are no laughing matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 May 2016 - 12:57 PM)

If you leave your mass graves open for random people to lie naked in, you're doing it wrong.

@  Paladin : (05 May 2016 - 12:53 PM)

isn't "friendzone" a made-up thing creepers use to comfort themselves when they get shot down by women who wouldn't willingly lie naked with them in a mass grave?

@  ▲ndrusi : (05 May 2016 - 10:40 AM)

Great, a bacon pun. Now people making pig puns will hog the chatbox.

Dude, calm down! What's your beef man?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 May 2016 - 10:59 PM)

Are you so sure about that? I don't think you've considered what's at steak here.

@  MidnightFox : (04 May 2016 - 10:56 PM)

No need to buffalo anyone.

@  The Doctor Who : (04 May 2016 - 10:54 PM)

Is that all it takes for you to cowtow? Aren't you going to try and milk it a bit more?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (04 May 2016 - 10:36 PM)

On second thought, I'm just going to hoof it out of here.

@  The Doctor Who : (04 May 2016 - 10:32 PM)

Bad jokes abound, wollen you know it.

That was meant to be a status update, not a shout. Oops.

try to get 99% isopropyl, it works much faster then the normal 75% most stores stock. I have never had any issues with plastic tolerance using just rubbing alcohol, however you want to avoid prologned contact, just use as much as you need. Avoid getting it on too much of the figure, as it will disolve any adhesives and weaken other paint apps in the area. Also clean the figure with something before painting, as the panel lines can hold rubbing alcohol in them, hindering repainting.

And, for the love of all that is holy, change the thread title to "tampographs"

For simple tampos, like faction sigils, I've found that rubbing it with a hard eraser, like the ones on the tip of pencils, works like a charm. It was very effective at removing the big Decepticon sigils on Universe Heavy Load.

Erasers do work really good too, just always be careful some erasers and any eraser that appears to have grit in it will sometimes marr or dull certain plastics, so maybe test on a part normally covered during most modes.

Rip the green scrub part off the back of a sponge. Cut it into small squares, dip it, and rub away. That worked wonders for my Ramjet and Skywarp customs.
