Testor Enamels over Tamiya Primer
Posted by IBuild148 on Friday, February 11, 2022 8:42 PM

Good evening,

Getting ready to start Tamiya's 1/48 Stuka. 

I found some old testor enamel RLM colors (used my paint shaker to make sure they were still good) that will be used for the exterior. 

My question is can I use the Testor enamels over tamiyas primer?

Thank you

Absolutely.  Tamiya primer is lacquer, so you can use any kind of paint over the top of it.  If you're airbrushing, any paint can go over any primer/paint, as long as you're not using your airbrush like a firehose and you allow proper curing time of your paint layers.
