Evening everyone, I just purchased a brass steam locomotive on a Face Book sale page and it arrives tomorrow. It is Japanese in manufacture and was made in 1963. Supposedly has little run time. I had another that I sold a year or so ago and have regretted it ever since so I am looking forward to this one. I've never painted a brass model of any kind and wonder what is the best type of paint for that application? I've painted and continue to build and paint any number of plastic models, trains and planes mostly as well all manner of r/c planes and boats so it's not a new concept but I would like to get this right without a lot of do-over. I'll post some photos of it when it arrives. For now I think I'll go out to the garage and try and straighten out the layout which looks as though a tornado went through. Thanks. Rick H.
