Yes, you can paint it. We recommend using watercolour, gouache or mordant types of paint. You can use acrylic paints as well, however, the density may prevent gears from moving freely.
What is the best way to assemble the models?
To safely release a part from the board and avoid any potential damage to it, gently press your fingers about the indicated lines. For the best assembly results and to ensure the correct fit we recommend checking each detail for flaws and removing imperfections using the finest grit sandpaper. If connecting of certain parts appears difficult, try using household wax candle to lubricate the parts.
Do I need to cut the parts out of the boards?
No. All the parts are pre-cut and can be easily taken out of a board by pressing lightly with your fingers. The parts stay in place on a board, connected by small cross pieces. If you experience difficulties removing a part of the board, simply use a cardboard box opener to detach it.
What material are the models made of?
All the models are made of ecological plywood.
