Very tired after an infernal work day... So I made little work only: sanding, and creation of the gabarits for the lozenges decals of the fuselage.

Ha ha :) I never ask you, what do you use to apply primer, from spray bottle or airbrush?

I apply as primer an acrylic white (usually Tamiya or Gunze) with my airbrush. Don't like too much spray bottles: some years ago I used Citadel white primer in spray, but that was a stinking color (my wife disputed me each time due to the odor left in the house...) and sometimes I had "blotches" in the paint.

That said, it's possible for my second Fokker that I will use grey color as primer; I'm documenting for a heavy weathering...

Thank you for reply. What airbrush you use for White primer, I also have bottle but never open it. And what to use for thinner, I mean optional thinner. By the way- you have airbrush just for primers or not?

Now THAT I understand!!!!!! I have a Dupont Variprime primer that I have used and it STINKS :-danger :-danger. Ellen threatens to throw me out to the dogs :-bat every time I even think about using that stuff, and I paint in the garage!

I must again say thanks for the sponge idea--I've used it on the last few builds and it is a great thing. :-flo

Sorry to answer so lately mate... :(
I use a Badger 150. Not only for primer but also for all my painting works. I have a new airbrush (Evolution) but have not really tested it actually... When I will use the Evolution, of course the Badger will be used for primer only...

Yes, some products are really stinking...

For the sponge, see the Hellcat: a new use... ;)
