Wanted to make sure you're aware that Testor's Enamel Primer is not an actual primer. It is just a gray paint. It does not do anything to help paint adhere to the plastic.
When I worked in a hobby store, we used to have people come in with the same problems. I would tell them to use either Tamiya's primer or automotive primer. Your best bet would be to stip it down completely and start with one of the primers mentioned above. You'll definitely be happier with the result. On top of that it dries within a couple of hours.

I think I'll just buy a new kit, its not even worth the trouble. I'll strip the "primered" one and keep it as a test dummy!

Thanks fellas.

P.S. anyone want some Testors primers and clear coats!!!! On sale 1/2 price, get 'em while they last!! :lol:

Enamel paint takes a long time to dry, and for some reason especially so with Testor's.

Some good recommendations for primer have been posted here. Personally I've given up on Testor's enamels altogether, other than the small square bottles for detail painting. Acrylics and lacquers dry MUCH faster than Testor's enamel. I don't have the patience to wait out Testor's!

I hear you. I thought to myself, hell it'll take me months to finish ONE paintjob, that is rediculous. I bought primers, clear, and different colors all by Testors and all enamels from Tower!!! Guess I'll have to buy some more paint.
