Vallejo do their own primer, also don't use tap water to dilute - even their modelair paint still requires some thinning for air brush use. If you can't get their thinner use distilled water as a diluent.

I've used it with Revell, Tamiya & Valejo paints with great success


I've just seen they do a range of primers now.  Not tried them but will be ordering some shortly
