Unpainted primed models are fluffy!

“It was a long and circuitous drive from the Xanthus star port to the southern entrance to the forge complex. Nemiel’s Rhino – fresh from the assembly lines at Diamat and still showing its black coat of manufactory primer – had to first head north, past a series of fortified checkpoints, then eastward through a literal maze of narrow streets.”

Well, primer base + bare metal on grills/guns/etc + [pick your glowing color] lenses/targeting arrays/etc, is 3 color min. Ink/Shade + highlight a bit, and you have the grounds for an interesting looking group of freshly minted warriors caught in the conflict before they could even get baseline! (In Mobile Suit Gundam, the titular robot is actually supposed to be in just-primed base coat since it never even got to testing before the nearby civie needed to jump in and pick up the users manual, so it goes the entire series effectively in primer lol).

See? This is what I’ve been using all along.
“Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon.”
