Hi Chris, the paints and ahesives you need will depend on what type of kits you will be building, vinyl, plastic and resin are all available, for vinyl you will need superglue and acrylic paints, plastic you can use superglue or liquid poly and most types of paints, resin kits I've never built.
The basic tools you need are a good hobby knife, fine sandpaper and a selection of good quality brushes.
For priming most models I use car acrylic primer, grey or white.
Hope this helps, Derek

no problem Chris, depending on the kit, if it's a figure, I like to fill the legs with plaster of paris, this gives it some weight, also if it has outstretched arms, I use wire to strengthen them, vinyl can sag over time.
