Why not? A penny saved is a penny earned. What you saved
can go into more kits :-)

When I paint white, I've started to just use Testor's white primer---great
stuff.  Nothing's happened yet, and my primer-only Tallgeese is the whitest
thing I have, even whiter than my bright white airliners.  I say go for it, if
it's the color you want.

So I was priming parts for a model right.  And surprisingly, the color of
the primer is exactly the color I want for that part.  Being the cheap ass
that I am, I start thinking that I won't even have to paint it, I'll leave
it as is.

So, can I?  Or should I actually go and buy the color of grey that I want?

I've done the same thing; I would recommend putting a coat of dullcoat
or glosscoat, depending on the finish, to protect it.  Most primer is
incredibly thin, so an extra layer couldn't hurt.
