HO scale 1:87 Bowler and Top hats assortment for the period modeler. Contains:
10 top hats, 10 high profile bowler hats, 10 low profile bowler hats, 10 small high profile bowler hats and 10 small low profile bowler hats. The smaller hats are about 90% the size of the large ones.
Prior to painting the hats they should be thoroughly cleaned in denatured alcohol and dishwashing liquid to get rid of the process wax. Use enamel or acrylic paint. Due to Shapeways material wall thickness restrictions the brim is a bit thicker then it should be. Use a small file to slightly file away some of the material making the brim thinner prior to mounting it to a figure of your choosing. The example figures are from Preiser. To mount the hats just cut away the top of the head on the figure until you are satisfied with the fit. Then glue it on with ACC or styrene glue.
