When I model, I usually don't get to the "paint" stage. I enjoy the building part the most, so I don't have that much experience with painting. I do own an airbrush (I will have to dig it out of some box that I shoved it into when I moved). My question (after all this rambling) is this--- I am almost done with a Pz1F that should be painted German panzer gray, I bought some Tamiya German Gray but what color should the primer coat be?? I have read about people using flat black as a primer, but should you use another color instead to make the gray look better?
Any input will help with this matter.
Your query would get better results if you had posted in the "Axis WWII" DG.
I'll take a stab at it, if you want to do it like the real deal, you could always get a bottle of Polly Scale's "SPEACIAL OXIDE RED" (#414354) in their "Model Railroad Colors" line - it's an acrylic paint in A 1oz bottle.
