  1. I have for my future layout several KATO bridge spans, some truss type for the main spans and some non-truss for the approaches. I have each type in both "red" and "green", except the shades of red for the truss and non-truss aren't even close to similar, and the same goes for the green spans. So I would like to paint the bridges so each bridge, end to end, is one color. I've already determined that the bridge spans are molded in color, so I won't be painting over existing paint. What I need to know, if anyone can help, are: What type of plastic does KATO use for their bridges? Based on the answer to 1 above, what would be good types of paint to use? I do have an airbrush, so either an airbrush-compatible paint or an aerosol type would be acceptable. The bridges won't be handled once they're installed in the layout, so resistance to flaking from handling isn't really an issue here. I just want my two full bridge spans to look less patchworked, if you know what I mean. Thanks.
