Prior to painting the parts should be thoroughly cleaned in denatured alcohol and dishwashing liquid to get rid of the process wax. Use primer coat and then enamel or acrylic paint. They may need some sanding depending on how they where oriented when printed. The cowcatchers are mounted by first cutting off the cowcatcher on the donor model. Then glue on the cowcatcher using a small piece of styrene or brass as reinforcement beneath it. Refer also to the photos. The smokestacks fit directly to the top of the smokebox. Some sanding may be needed for a perfect fit.
