In Topic: Primer?

05 September 2011 - 04:22 PM

I am no model building expert but I would always prime before painting just about anything from models to your bedroom wall. Primer help hide little imperfections and with give the paint something to bite into. I would just put a couple light coats first coat mist then just enough to cover and not hide any detail. As far as brands I've not painted a model in a long (which is about to change) but from what I've read Dupli-Color and PlastiKote are the best. Thats my 2 cents worth anywho.

What are you building? Just curious don't wanna change the subject.

Mike,

I have an airbrush (where I dunno but I'll find it). It is a Paasche double action but I haven't used it in years but for $60+ you can beat I'll find it. Should I still primer first? I found the metalizer on ebay for 99 cents. Its exhaust color which looks a lil darker but still in the aluminum spectrum (at least on Testors lil swatches).
