LOL! I'm sorry, I bet I've confused you a bit. If you're just starting, it will be far easier for you to build the kit as the instructions tell you to. Far easier. I just get off-topic a bit too easily, it seems.

I use model paint. I use mostly Tamiya, but I've used Testors in the past, too. I guess Guiddy uses automotive paint and I don't know what primera man uses.

It's different!
Automotive gives a softer, more realsitic finish, but model paint is more scale like it you use a metallic!
model paint is glossier, but a bit plasticy, where as automotive paint takes more work!
Notice the look of this EVO 6 painted using Tamiya's TS-50.

I mostly use Tamiya enamel's and the odd bottle of Humbrol.
I find using the enamel's far better then the water based paint.
The water based paint dries to quick for my liking. If you are painting a "larger" bit you will tend to "pull the paint off" if you brush back over it, making it look bad

Sleepy....have you seen the thread in here with the Primera's i done ???
