Response to how many of you guys prime your plastic

In the past i never primed anything just gave it a nice thick base coat. I always used Humbrol's, but in the last ten years what ever they did to the formula, i found they would lift with a wash. Now i prime using a base of Humbrol Acrylic spray cans. They are as hard as a rock after 30 to 60 mins. If i'm doing German i prime in a base of sand, if allied then green. After that i airbrush the required colours. I don't think i ever felt the need to wash a model before painting as some people do.
