Hi everyone - and thank you very much for following along.

Let's get busy with the armor. Not having experience painting this type of finish before this was basically an exercise in the blind leading the blind. It appears that the inspiration tractor in the photo is covered in basic sheet metal. I decided to portray my tractor with something a little more substantial - steel plates. So here it goes....

...underlying base color of a grey/blue (steel color?) with a little dark/rusty colored pre-shade around the panels.



Sealed with Future and then a layer of hairspray...



Acrylic colors on - and then taken off using the hair spray technique....and then put on again. The idea was to get as much depth and interest to the steel plates as possible.





I decided to break things up a little bit and went ahead and added a "sheet metal" sign to the roof. I made a quick stencil on the computer - the letters P and E - for no reason at all....



Oh - I forgot to mention that I had given the "sheet metal" a misting of hair spray before I added the graphic - and then I scrubbed a little to show some age and wear...



I decided to highlight the welds using Reaper Pewter - this step will be repeated time and time again to refresh the color...



The process continues - Filters, oils, and finally a touch of pigments...







I misted a light layer of Fixer to "set" the pigments...



The devil is in the details - the metal edges of the radiator armor are highlighted using Model Masters Burnt Steel...




Ok - and here we are at the moment....







This is Not the End! Next will be figures and base.

Thanks,
Rick

Hi Rick,

The improvised armor is looking very good . That Reaper pewter stuff, is that paint or pigments?

eagerly awaiting your next update,

Gert-Jan
