I use Tamiya primer and colours. I think they are great, however, I think they are still a little pricey for the quantity. Are there any other brands that are good with the Tamiya primer such as Krylon? I am in Canada, so my option may be limited.

I've used duplicolor and Testor's both.  Testor's lacquers work really well, and Duplicolor is a great value since it's typically in larger cans.

Can I use Tamiya primer with Duplicolor? And are the Testors lacquers mixed with primer, or do I need to apply a separate coat?

I have used Tamiya primer with Duplicolor paint. Tamiya is the best primer in my opinion but you can always use Duplicolor primer also.

I think the flat grey is mixed with primer
