SWhite Spray Paint

Been put off from completing my TSR-2 1/48 after the shoddy results I got with brush-on white paint on the 1/72 version. Never used a spray paint gun and not serious enough to want to buy one but I thought I could use a Halfords(?) spray can. It's all white so should not be an issue.

BUT, there are wide varieties of 'white'. Can anyone offer advice on which spray can 'white' I should use? Or does it not matter?

Most people use "Appliance white" as a base white or primer.
