    If I got some for some touch ups will they wear off or are they good? I understand that parts scraping can remove it but what if I just want to add some colour, will it work out alright?

    Gundam pens: yes, Sharpies: no hardly at all. Sharpies scrape off way too easy

    Molotow chrome pens work great too.

    That's good to know. I own a few gunpla kits that I have yet to assemble but I hoped that the markers would work well on Transformers as they're paint. Some figures need some silver.

    From my experience Gundam markers works better on TF's than Gunpla. My Exia's panel lining disappears after fooling around with it for short time, meanwhile my panel lining on my Nitro Zeus(who is being main target of tortures done by my younger brother)is still holding pretty well.

    A little too well. They're extremely addictive.
