Paul2660 Posted August 3, 2022 Share Posted August 3, 2022 I would like ideas from others on a "best" primer for resin parts. My current process is to wash the parts with Westley's Bleach Cleaner, sanding them with 800 grit, then spray them with Mr Surfacer 1000 or 1500. Paint I am using is either Mr Paint, AK real colors, (lacquer type), Mr Hobby (lacquer type) and Mission Models Acrylic Problem I have is when masking, the paint will lift off when the tape is pulled off, down to the resin. This seems to happen with any of the paints listed above, more often with the pure Acrylics. Just painted a Eagle Parts FW-190 Cockpit set, used AK real colors RLM 66, and when I pulled off the tape where I was masking the demarcation between RLM 02 and 66, the 66 pulled off down to the base resin. But it also happens on other resin parts I have worked with (veterans models, Barracuda parts etc). I am holding off working on a larger resin kit until I can find a better alternative to the primer solution. Are there other primers, that will bind better to resin, even rattle can brands?
