    I've just recently bought some white Tamiya primer and acrylics that I am planning to use on my Ironhide.

    Seeing that I am totally clueless as to how I am supposed to use it, I'd like to ask for your help.

    Am I supposed to thin it? Is it okay that I use a brush (I don't have an airbrush)?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I havent ever brushed primer onto a figure but i would imagine that it would be really damn hard to accomplish and have it still smooth at the end result. I'm always just air brushed it on. Worth a try though with a little bit. I would say thin it but I dont know what you should use to thin it down... I guess this didnt answer your question at all lol.. good luck..

    I b rush it. Use the Tamiya thinner and go to town. I use Model Masters though, thins with water, lot easier. You're gonna have to sand and recoat, a couple times maybe.
