I've had good luck using Plastikote Flexible primer. This is if I'm not using the Silver covering. Paint's don't stick as well, but scuffs look like weathering on aluminum, The other Solartex's have more of a fabric weave, which I don't think looks too 'scale' on some ships, so I use the primer to fill some of the weave. It won't fill it all. The Silver is great stuff, but seems harder to find. The flexible primer is harder to sand, but you only have to scuff it to get good top coat adhesion. I've dorked my 60" 109 many times and it still looks fine.
