Regarding automotive primers, I used the warehouse chain's own brand of Alkyd paint. Sprayed from a distance of 20 cm as recommended on the can, 2-3 layers in all coating the figure nicely without obscuring any details. Quicker than enamels and no danger of metal surface shining through.
I noticed that there is almost no engraving on the face of the monk ... This will leave you some freedom or difficultiies togive him a face !
and can't see the back side, but the litle point on the back right leg of the donkey or horse, is it his tail?


I apologize for the poor photo, the figure engraved by Reibold has a face but not as expressive as an engraving by F. M. Mohr.
Yes it's the donkey's tail.

Hello Casper
Interesting that you used automotive primer, I have thought about it but, assumed that it would be too heavy and obscure the engraving.
Be interested to hear your experience.
Kindest regards

Still work in progress. This time I used automotive primer as undercoating, nowadays I'm passning an automotive discount warehouse on my way to work...
Bought the set second-hand from Scholtz
