Painting HO Scale Brass


Paul Hillman
 

I have an unpainted brass car that I've had for a few years and I'm getting around to painting it.

It's been quite a while since I painted a brass car. Wondering what are the best current methods?

In the past I have baked on a primer, then sparyed the final colors. There's always problems with paint adherence to handrails and corners / edges of parts.

I've tried "Blacken-It" on brass parts but it doesn't adhere "super-strongly". Of course blasting & cleaning are first required.

Thanks, Paul Hillman
