switching to water based paints

Recommended Posts

I've recently been switch to AK airbrush acrylics.
I have been building an Abrams which came with metal wire parts. 
Is there anything I need to do to get acrylics to adhere well to metal wire parts?

Any metal primer will do, such as Tamiya surface primer or Gunze Mr. Metal Primer.  AK acrylics might even stick well to bare metal parts.  Do some testing to find out.

My experience has been good with the Badger Stynylrez primer, water based, and covers metal as well as resin quite well.
