    Nope, but it is necessary before you apply a coat of paint on your kit because it allows the paint a place to hold on to rather than the factory's original plastic surface.

    if u wan primer before gundam marker, also can..

    if u dun wan primer before gundam marker, also can.

    but as bros said, primer let the paint hold on better than on plastic surface.

    me myself nvr use primer. thats why my works can nvr compare with the bros here.

    just to share my bit of encounter w gundam markers..

    used to do a few sanguo kits previously and painted white marker over red parts, after drying, the part become pinkish in color, not sure if those using markers experience this (or could b only me). and i believe the reason is b'cos i did not prime my kits (i was only using markers then)

    using gundam markers is quick and convenient definitely. however, i would like to add tat primer itself can oso act as a basecoat and do allow paint to stick better onto the surface as mentioned by Ayano.

    in addition, by priming your kits, it will 'make' the nubmarks, seamlines etc more prominent and one can choose to rectify those to make the kits look better.

    end of the day, its still your choice whether u wan to use primer anot for your kits. but shld u choose not to use primer, i would like to suggest u can 'marker' the markers onto the runners 1st to see if there's any color changes (my experience of white markers on red parts became pink) after drying b4 proceeding to marker onto the kit itself.

    my 2 cents

    White markers need more than 1 coat to fully cover the plastic base.

    Hahaha tell me about it, once I accidentally forgot to spray a small portion on one of my parts and I had already applied top coat to it Shocked

    Had to slowly and painfully color that portion over and over again~ Sad

    I'm not happy Mad

    Lesson learnt.

    Yes, that is why you need to apply coats after coats on the same area. Just remember this painful lesson and don't do it in the future Embarassed

    I have a number of markers ordered online. But no idea how to remove them effectively when you paint incorrectly. Any advice?

    Some comics connection sell gundam markers. Or you can go to HAG or HAW or MWS to get them too.

    If using panel line marker on unpainted parts, yes to use eraser/tissue to remove smudges.

    If refering to gundam paint marker, thinner would b able to remove them but pls note that e time of exposure for thinner on parts. Too long an exposure will make e plastics very brittle and surface of parts will be compromise.

    Quick question, if using paint extracted from gundam markers to hand paint, what should you clean your brush with? Water? Or enamel thinner? (Not sure what kind of paints gundam markers use). Sorry for noob question!

    If just for cleaning, just use industrial lacquer thinner. Sure can.
