    I've used it with pretty good results. They say no prep but if you wipe your figure down with thinner first it says it promotes adhesion. I use the Outdoor Camo Fusion flat black as a base coat, as do many on the boards here! Give it a try, the only real limitations is the narrow choice of colors.

    Yeah, play around with a figure that won't break your heart if you FUBAR it. As for no sand/no prep, take it with a grain of salt. If your surface needs sanding, it needs sanding. I think they are suggesting you don't need to rough up the surface to give it some "tooth" to grab onto.

    Another question regarding Fusion is, does it adhere to soft plastics like what hasbro used for the Fallen's fingers, or most of the tips on the ROTF figures?

    chris morada recommended the fusion on the softer parts of plastic. I've had mixed results. The camouflage flat black seems to bond well and dry, however some of the glossier finish colored ones I've had problems with.

    This stuff is good. But those soft plastics always stay a little sticky with me. But I have only used the regular, not the camo.

    Thanks Frenzy. i was spraying my Fallen tonight and the soft parts on the forearm seem to be tacky, and the hands seem to be slughtly tacky. I think I might put a clear coat, flat acrylic, on them and spray another coat off the fusion on. I was using Satin Black.
