Best Primer for Resin? in The Workshop! Posted June 13, 2013 · Edited June 13, 2013 by Noyhauser Maybe I'm just weird/bad at models but I've had more luck overall with Tamiya paints verso anything from Mr.Hobby. BTW, I know Mr.Hobby makes a "Mr. Resin" primer, I've never used it so I've got no idea how good it is. Funny, I've been using tamiya paints for about 10 years now and I've recently gone over to Gunze. The quality of finish is much much better and I have less issues with colours. I can also use them for brush paints, something you really can't do well with tamiya. Mr Surfacer is probably one of the best products they put out, though tamiya's rattle can primer (white and normal) are better than Mr Surfacer from a can.
