I just bought some models on ebay that were already put together and primed... they are in good shape but the primer coat was rubbed off in some places and there are a few models that were painted a little. I'm wondering if I should Re-Prime them, try to get all of the primer that is already on them off, or just go with them as they are... any suggestions?
Best thing to do would be to strip them and start fresh. If the primer is rubbing/flaking off then it sounds like it's failing. Anything you paint on top of that, be it primer or paint, will most likely flake off anyway when the bad primer gives up.
on second thought... i have quite a few models and don't really want to have to scrub all the paint off all of them... would I lose much detail with a second coat of primer? it's not flaking off, it just looks like the guy sanded some of it off that was on the high points... would I be able to paint straight onto the metal?
