The question is simple.

Which is the best for priming figures, or is there any real difference?

I have both Mr. Surfacer 1200 and Mr. Resin Surfacer in Spray-form, and I really want to get them tested as a figureprimer, before I attend a big hobbyfair in Germany late April. The Mr. Series isn't ready available here in Denmark.

I find that Mr. Resin Primer sticks to resin better, so it best for priming kits. Use Mr.Surfacer 500-1200 for filling in pinholes and other imperfections.

I have a preference for Mr. Resin primer, but have used Mr. Surfacer 1000 and 1200 in the past with no negative results. In fact, these products feel near-identical with the exception of their advertised "grain"

If you're worried about accidentally filling details, look for Mr Resin Primer in a jar, so that it can be thinly applied with an airbrush since aerosols tend to be thick in comparison.
