Re: Painting HO Scale Brass

I would urge that this step be done cautiously. If the brass is one of those with a tough, adherent "brass-color" lacquer on it, no harm done. If it is bare brass, I would be careful because this mild etch can preferentially attack solder, depending on the composition of solder used in the original fabrication. So watch carefully around any visible solder joints and if anything seems to be happening there, STOP and remove and rinse thoroughly.
