Hi, I am going to start working on a Dragon Panther A Late useing Eduard PE Zimmerit. My Question's are; 1. What is the best Paint to prime the PE with ? 2. What is the Reccomended Glue/Adhesive to use to get the PE to bond with the plastic ?

Thanks in Advance, milvehfan

I really like gator glue avaialble from Kenny L over in the model shipwrights section.
Stronger (shear strenght) than superglue/CA, water clean up, a few seconds of working time. It's really great.

As for primer, I'm not a primer guy, basecoat of Tamiya Dark Yellow worked fine for me on an old set of Eduard etch zimm
