I have an expensive Cosmic rural station in HO. All the parts are white plastic. Should I paint them before I glue them together?  What’s the best kind of paint to use for this?

Hi John! Yes, I would recommend to paint it before assembly. Maybe a can of primer first and then acrylic paint. I'm not really familiarized with the kit you mention. Could you post some pics?

Hi John! All the station I found of Cosmic are wood laser-cut, is that so? If that's the case I would prime it anyway and sand it with a 600grit or more before painting it. Maybe some paint after assembly for the unions or corrections. Anyway, let us know how you're going with the build!

There also are two HO rural timber kits.

Hobby Search has three Cosmic acrylic kits. All are N scale sized for B-Train shorties.

OK! When I look on Hobby Search on Cosmic+Station only showed me the timber stations.🤨

Anyway, I would say Primer first, the some acrylic paints, the assembly. You can make some weathering afterwards If you like it.
