    If you mean they say "For Polycarbonate" on the front, then stay far away. They are meant for polycarbonate (type of plastic, iirc), which is generally what you'll find used for the translucent (clear-ish) pieces of a TF. Probably won't adhere as well to other parts.

    Works perfectly on Gundams, though.

    the premise for those paints is for painting up RC vehicles, which their bodies are primarily made of polycarbonate plastic.

    Not unless you know those parts are polycarbonate. Which is generally clear parts. Otherwise, no.
