Spotlight Review

"Great primer, a must for all models" (Fairborn, OH)
I got back into modeling recently and deciding that I would do everything right (or as right as possible), I decided to use a good primer. I found my solution in the Tamiya Fine Surface Primer. Spray a light to medium coat on each peace that will be final coated. Before applying the final color, I recommend carefully wiping down all primed surfaces as they may contain a fine dusting of primer that dried before it got to the model pieces. Test the surfaces by wiping a finger lightly over them. If there is a light residue on your finger, wipe the surface with a soft or cotton cloth. Do I like this product? Hobbylinc just delivered two more cans today.

"The best I have found so far."
Tamiya fine surface primer provides a very smooth surface on which to apply your color coat. I use other primers like Krylon for all the bodywork but when that is done, this goes on last before the finish. Excellent! It's a bit pricey (the price at Hobbylinc is the lowest I've found) but it's definitely worth it.

"Great Primer"
Great fine white enamel. Always use primer. If you have problems with runs in your paint on plastic it probably has to do with your primer or the lack of primer. Find a primer that's right for you. If it's enamel paint your using find a enamel primer. And so on with acrylic or lacquer your primer should match your paint. I never have runs in my paint. Surface Primer #1

"More primer that it looks"
There's a lot more primer in this than what the can and other people may lead you to believe. I have primed almost 7 kits with this and there's still some at the bottom. Granted I took my time and slowly dusted the primer on, but that still means there's a lot of primer in here. I noticed that that the primer is actually very smooth compared to other primers, but is still mostly matte. It is shinier than other primers (ie: Krylon, Testors). But this stuff is much better. Being a lacquer primer, it grips onto the plastic like a shark would bite a fish. Rubbing it will not remove primer at all, and scraping it with anything other than metal wouldn't do much either.
