You may be able to start over: Many acrylic paints can be stripped with with alcohol, which will not affect styrene if it is bonded with a solvent or a styrene cement. My recollection is that 91% isopropyl works well, but you may also want to try ethyl. Both should be available from any drug store.

Thanks for all the tips. Can't believe this information can't be found on an internet search. Glad I did it on a lower priced model that had missing parts and had been started by the prior owner and not done that well. Chalk it up to the cost of education.
Definitely use a grey primer. I use either a light gray NON filling primer from Walmart or Tamiya light gray primer.

Recommendation would have been to apply a couple of coats of thin primer first - before painting. Using a neutral color (light grey or a muted white) will make a uniform surface and will enable the final paint to be all one shade. It can vary when laid upon black and other sections are white.
