Even the brand new pots. Oil paints can BURN IN HELL! At least, Tamiya water colors will not pull that bullshit on me.
Yep, oil based paints are bad for plastics. I think it's because plastics are petrolium (oil) based too, so it somehow causes a chemical reaction that dissolves/breaks them down.
I always use Testors Acryllics, but of course those are the equivalent of nail polish so they tend to scratch etc. with too much handling, but for the most part I paint my customs and put them on the shelf in the mode and pose that I like best, so I don't have to worry about wear due to transformation etc.
