This question may be a bit between categories, but here goes.  What is the recommended sand-able micro-fill primer?  Vallejo primers only seem to work if the surface is completely perfect.

I just sold my three bottles of Vallejo for his exact reason!

I have heard great things about the ultimate products primers, that's what I'm going to go for

Good tips! Some modelers use Mr Surfacer 1000 and dilute it, then use it as a primer. Have not tried that myself.

Ultimates primer is Badger's Stynylerez.

Breath of fresh air in primers. There are a number of advantages with this stuff. First although it appears gloopy
it produces a very thin surface plus it obliterates. Being thin it does not clog detail panel lines etc.

Second is in 2 hours you can sand it. It sands to a very very fine edge. You can after additional filling sanding over coat
the bare bits and you will not notice the join line.

They do about 5 colours. It goes a long way. Tip they say .5 needle nozzle I get away with, just, a .4. It does not need
thinning. When finished I advise stripping down the airbrush as takes a bit of cleaning up. But then nothing is for
nothing on this earth.

A little tip. Yellow on prop blades is a darned nuisance. I have found one coat of Stynylerez Yellow is perfect.

Lastly my only criticism. Stupid name. But then it comes from the USA. Whoops sorry joking.

Mr Surfacer Ted is an interesting product. The 500 is absolutely superb filler and will not disturb Stynylerez ie melt it.
Put on in as many layers to build up. One of the only fillers I have found which will sand to a perfect join with the plastic
and does not flake at the edges. Make good with Stynylerez and you will not see the join.

Used the 1000 Surfacer but only for handbrushing resin and PE add ons which works well. Stynlerez I have not found
good on both these materials. I have read that some use Surfacer for priming. But it is pretty toxic airbrushing stuff.

PS. I always wear a nose filter for Stynylerez otherwise I get blocked nostrils. Plus a ducted extract from the airbrush
hood.

Sorry this is a bit long but tried to break it up.

Correct about using Mr Surfacer for primer. You have to thin it with lacquer thinner--bad vapors!
