Does anyone know if the paint over the Brass Valves has been brought to MTH's attention? Here are two examples of the latest engines from MTH I ordered. I am a little bummed that the brass valves are painted over. I tried searching if there was a post on this before but could not find one. Is there a safe method of removing the paint and exposing the brass?
