"Seems as good as the Tamiya gray primer"
This sprays, and dries well just like the Tamiya gray primer, which is great stuff. It takes a bit more to fully cover though. The gray fully covers in about three coats for me, I tried this primer on a chrome piece, and it's not yet fully covered after three coats. I'm really Only using it for adhesion on white plastic, as to not deepen the final color as the red does, but if your planning on using it to lighten up a dark body for a light color, it's gonna take several coats.

"The best I have found so far."
Jpd123 (Virginia USA)
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.

"Best fine white primer avaiable!"
easy to spray easy to sand nice smooth finish best mode primer out there! good stuff!!

"The Essential First Coat on Plain Plastic Model Surfaces"
RAW42 (VA)
This Tamiya surface primer is by far the best white primer on the market, in my opinion. It levels out and dries very quickly even though a lacquer (L) product, although I allow a full day to dry before working with it further. It shows where seams may still need sanding out, and when the seam is filled with putty (or liquid thin cyanoacrylate) re-sanded, and re-primed, the repair disappears. I also use this primer for model surfaces that are required to be white. I do not use a white paint overcoat as it holds a high polish alone. As a base coat, both enamels and acrylics overlay it smoothly. I also use the primer L gray version of the product with the same results.
