Well I lucked out with the weather and ended up having a warm enough day to get to the splashcoat. For those new to kit building, a splashcoat is a light coat of primer who’s purpose is to reveal any blemishes (seams, holes, cracks, etc) that may be otherwise invisible. Since I plan on using Krylon brand paint for the basecoat, I decided to use Krylon’s gray primer for the splashcoat. Krylon’s primer is good because drying time is quite short. I applied a thin, even coat to the three main pieces (body, door, and back panel) and let them dry overnight.
