Krylon's Color Master series for most paints. The paint-primer they have is usually awesome. For the Barzam I'm using their grey primer. For brighter colors or a white primary I use their paint+primer colormaster ivory.

No. Unless we do get a full HGAC line, both the HGAC Wing and Wing Zero were explicitly part of the All Gundam Project, which was to provide modern HG's for all the TV mains. That project, by the way, is done, as of the release of Airmaster.

Now i'm getting worried. I can't get microsol or Mr. Setter or any other solution online here for non-gouging prices (from where i've browsed) or in any decent timeframe, and my city has a distinct lack of any hobby shops. I did do waterslides on the Stein without setting solution but it got really annoying/had to wait an age for them to dry.

Any Canada Gunpla/Plampfags know a good hook up for decaling solution?

Don't know why someone would lie like that on the internet. Nearest store to me that carries Gunpla is two hours away and is stupidly marked up. Ordering from Japan is cheaper per-item but shipping sucks and customs can and will sometimes take the screws to you. Ordering from the USA is slightly better but shipping can also be stupid, not to mention the spooky customs agents that will tag your shit at will.

Or maybe there is a secret Gunpla retailer that my country-kin have never told me about that makes it all worth it.

You should hit up HobbyWave. They're Canadian based, with good prices on their kits as they're all roughly the same price as the price on the box.

RG Z'Gok for example, is $26 USD vs 2500 Yen box price.

Mark Setter & Mark Software are ~$4-5/bottle. In Japan they're like $3.50/bottle I'm pretty sure. So a very reasonable price.

I would go to the hobby store and get a gloss black, gloss blue (dark as possible) and a teeny bit of silver and try and mix something as close as possible then apply it with a small brush or toothpick ONLY TO THE MARK. no gundam marker will be close enough by itself

sadly, no. The titanium finish is quite diffrent.
Still, a black marker should be better than no touch up.
