Any excess of paint has to be avoided.
Particularly true with the white paint which is very fluid.
The primer I use is white.
I am fine at painting itself. My last 2x concorde plastic models had multiple layers of paint with T'cut and or 1200/2400 grit emery inbetween to smooth blemishes until I have a perfectly smooth even finish.
Also use white primer in multiple layers. I hate plastic kits but sometimes thats all we have to work with.
