Title: Post priming puttying
Post by: Jim Morbid on May 15, 2006, 11:08:27 AM

So I've read on a lot of tutorials that its recomended to prime after you fix any seam on a model so that you can see if you fixed it correctly. I did this on the Musha SD that I'm currently busy with ( mind you I think I fixed seams on every piece :shock: ) and primed the whole lot. Now as I suspected there are seams that showed up like day light after the priming, but I dont know what the best method of handling them is...

So do I putty the post-primer seams, sand and then re-primer, do I putty, sand and not primer again, do I use Tamiya Thin Cement again on the seam, sand and primer/not primer, do I fall to my knees and cry huge anime tears...

Thanks :P

Sand, putty, re-prime, repeat if necessary.

Thanks FF. While were on the topic of priming, can I:

1) Prime with Tamiya Fine in a spray can
2) Check seams and putty them up
3) Sand down excess
4) Re-prime puttyed areas with Mr. Surface 1000 through an airbrush

IE, can I mix Tamiya primer and Mr. Surface or will I cause dis-colouring problems later on?

Thanks again!
