    Hi
    I'm looking for a good replacement for Tombow marker, that seem to be the best fo edging papermodels.
    In Italy there is no way to put hands on decent gray markers, I'm dreaming of this set [​IMG] plus some other useful colors.

    Any suggestions?

    I would suggest Faber-Castell PITT artist pens.
    Inexpensive, come is a full palette of colors, easy to use and do not bleed. I use them for all my models.

    project about conquering the world seems to suffer some delays...
    Faber castel Pitt pens seems to be available on the european market but are very difficult to find on "real" store, even fine arts ones.
    I bought a couple of Letraset Promarker, double tip,good choice of colors) and I've tried them, but they are alcool-based and tend to bleed , so I was not very happy.

    ...but yesterday, SURPRISE. In a local stationery shop, I found... TOMBOW!


    P.S. If there is something useful in my post, is about my opinion on Letraset ;-)

    News for italian/european w40k builders, especially SM ones
    just found and tried these
    [​IMG]
    water based, permanent, non-bleeding, cheap... but with a big round tip.
    I think they will be almost useful for black templar,raven guard, dark angels,mentor legion, blood angels, blood crow, ultramarine... and so on.

    but I need a yellow!

    want to try it on an actual build (death company razorback, maybe, or dark angels
