I did hear that they have a flat rate of up to 9 dollars shipping,but I meant "Order" by other things.

You pay S&H no matter where you order from. For 4-8 days shipping, that's not too bad. if you want it quicker, $14 is what it'll cost you. Some places charge you a rate up to a certain amount. I wouldn't fret over $9 for shipping. Scalehobbyist is very reasonable priced than most places.

 

I just said I do know that scalhobbyist is very reasonable,with only 9 dollars shipping,I was just going to wait 'till I get a lot of items in my cart to make the shipping worth it.

Thanks,

Max

I don't know your situation,but Scalehobbyist isn't outrageous,but you want to order it when you order a kit or a bunch of other supplies then the shipping cost stays lower.

The Tamiya primer in the spray can is the better choice if you don't have an airbrush. 

 

 

 

I would've bought it if Hobby Lobby had it in stock,but just too darn expensive to order!

Brushable?  Sure, but be aware that this stuff is pretty thick. In fact, I use it to fill fine seams or to build up texture. It's pretty similar to the heavier grades of Mr. Surfacer or dissolved putty rather than the consistency of a "regular" primer.

Is Tamiya Liquid Surface Primer-G Brushable?
Posted by TheModeler on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 12:21 PM

So,I was at Hobby Lobby the other day to pick up some stuff.They were out of the Testors Spray Enamel Primer,or any other primer other than a Tamiya product.It was in a bottle similar to the Extra Thin Cement.It looked like this,but it had a G next to the name:

https://www.amazon.com/Tamiya-40-Liquid-Surface-Primer/dp/B000EK8IPU/ref=pd_lpo_60_t_0/146-5587033-2932358?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000EK8IPU&pd_rd_r=eb2daab7-3dcc-4a0a-9d84-c1c1085a76a6&pd_rd_w=AP0w8&pd_rd_wg=3XMZ7&pf_rd_p=16b28406-aa34-451d-8a2e-b3930ada000c&pf_rd_r=QVSPH3BGK3CN057PAD2E&psc=1&refRID=QVSPH3BGK3CN057PAD2E

I figured I could practice brush painting primer for a day(It was 6 bucks),but when I got home,I looked reviews on Amazon and they said that it works best with an airbrush.Well,if i'm darned(I don't have an airbrush)!But is it still brushable?

Thanks,

Max
