Starting to Prime

I am going to prime my model. Using the poor mans choice... Tamiya Sky grey acrylic paint. Actually i dont have any tamiya fine primer. So instead of driving 20 miles to buy some, I decided to use what I have. All primer does is help the actual paint stick to the model. The correct phrase would be to give it some teeth.

I am using an Iwata hpc air brush, and some acrylic thinner. You can use 97% alchohol if you dont have any acrylic thinner. Ive used alcohol many times and my models have come out fine.

Here are the primed pieces. It took me about 15 minutes to prime all of the pieces.
