Bob in Spokaloo
Resin parts prep question...

What is the best way to prime resin?

Do acrylic primers work or is it necessary to use an auto body primer or something like Mr Surfacer?

All the parts have been made squeaky clean with Super Clean to get off the mold grease, so that's been done.

Thank you...

Bob in Spokaloo ....and how about filler?

Can we use a regular putty (like Perfect Plastic Putty) on resin or is there a better choice?

Does it require a petroleum based filler like the green Squadron stuff?

Thank you....

H K Not an expert, but I never had any problems with Citadel primer ( acrylic) or regular putty ( Revell Plasto/ Vallejo putty)

Bart Teunis Well.... you can use every kind of primer ( AK, Alclat and Games workshop are very fine primers) and Basic Putty from Tamiya doesn't shrink the least
