Sweet serendipity! I was just sitting here this moment, trying to think of a way to make the STP reds on my Petty builds more red. For the most part they tend to come out orangey as they normally look after a days racing. I prefer mine to look pre-race. This might be just what i'm looking for. :D

Why not just use Plsti-Kote or Dupli-Color red oxide primer?

Personally, for a pink, I'd probably use white primer.

Because now you dont have too :lol:

If you use red primer, the red paint job wont be as bright

As the info says,

Indispensible when painting bright red, this primer provides an undercoat.

Awesome... when I painted my 288GTO I used red oxide primer and the Italian red turned out a little dark. This might be just the ticket for my next red Ferrari... probably the F50.

This is good news.....Tamiya Pink-Primer....with TS-8 ( Italian Red ) is going to go well with my Ferrari Kits...

Thanks for the info Jonathan...

What a great save! That guy was almost fired for not cleaning the vat thoroughly after the formulation of TS-85 before trying to mix the Fine White Primer. Comes out smelling like a roseā€¦

I just used the tamyia pink paint as a base and sprayed italian red over it. It turned out just like all the other italian reds i have used

Pink primer... sounds like a "new obsession". I suppose it does have it's practical uses.

I've had success with regular light gray primer, a thin coat of gold and then bright reds.

Like a light shining through the red.

Figure painters would love :wub: them if they'd come out with a black primer. Been telling them for years they need to do one... Smoothest primer on the market and they're blowing a nice little chunk not offering a black primer. <_<

And now pink, I guess for those guys who have to paint their scale Ferraris the exact same way the 1:1 Ferraris are painted. I remember years ago Modeler's Finisher's doing a McLaren Red set that included a pink primer.
