"Tamiya Primer"
This is simply the best primer you can buy. It does everything well. Sprays on smoothly. It is easy to sand. Takes color coat better than any other I've tried. I use it on all my plastic car models. Some paints have problems adhering without issue to styrene plastic. Once you prime your parts with this, all the problems go away. Thank you Hobbylinc.

"Great base coat"
TheJellyRanger (Atlanta, GA)
I use this on just about every model I build; it coats evenly and takes layers very well. Much better than whatever rattlecan primer you can snag in the paint dept. As mentioned, the can is a bit light but it’ll give you plenty of paint for several projects. If you don’t have an airbrush, this is the best substitute for your primer coating.

"Great medium fine primer mist" (Washington)
This gives a much finer texture for the paint to adhere to. I tried some cheap hardware store rattle can primer since it was a bigger sized prop and it was quite grainy and I had to sand it back down. This was perfect, it has a tiny bit of tooth, but I see they make a finer spray if you need that too. My only complaint, I wish they had it in a big hardware store size can. It's primer, you use it on everything.

"The best"
One of if not the best spray primer you can buy. Use outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Great coverage and very easy to use. The only drawback is the size of the can.
