Response to how many of you guys prime your plastic

I always prime everything, plastic, etch, resin, everything; because its just good painting practice for any number of reasons incluuding base coat adhesion, but also because if you want to lay thin coats on top, an unprimed model wuld show different tones on the different materials.

I use vallejo grey primer. it seems fine, but I'd be open to hearing about better ones. Don't prime with the surface primer though, its very fragile and is not really intended for general purpose priming apparently; but rather surface preparation (I know....)
