"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.

"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

"Great primer"
Overall, this is the best primer that I have used. I have both the white and light gray. They both are just as good, I have more of a personal preference to the gray though. It helps show any imperfections in the model, and gives a nice even coat as long as you don't hold the can in one spot for too long. I have only had a problem once with paint not sticking to the primer. I would highly recommend this primer.
