Title: Tamiya surface primer on Bandai Star Wars kits
Post by: jake on Thu Aug, 03, 2017, 09:38:AM
Anyone have any negative reactions with Tamiya?  I'm looking for a good "safe" primer for my Bandai Falcon and I broke the bank on some Tamiya surface primer.  I don't want to screw up the plastic though.  I used an off brand black primer on a Bandai Tie fighter and it wrinkled the plastic in a few areas.

   I've been quite happy with it  ....  use it on builds where I need to preserve fine detail  , as the RustOleum one I'm so fond of can be too heavy sometimes .
 Purchased it primarily for 1/35 figures .

  And  , yeah , I use it only when I need to due to it's price and coverage per volume  .

 Just used it on that  Bandai  2199  Dessula II  . 
 Tiny build  , but no issues  .
Preserved all the detail as expected of a lacquer over an oil .
In fact  ,, using that RustO on the  2199 Murasame build is what prompted me to acquire a finer primer .
