Any excess of paint has to be avoided.
Particularly true with the white paint which is very fluid.

The primer I use is white.

Thanks JP

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.
79x 1/200 Concordes plus 3x JCW/Gemini - and the fleet keeps growing. 5x 1/200 Concordskis - 24x 1/400 Concordes
