  • My tractor in 'John Deere' colors..

    I have just completed my UGears tractor. As you can see from the pictures, I painted the parts in 'John Deere' colors. I chose to paint the moving parts yellow, and the body of the tractor green. The green and yellow paints were simple craft paints, thinned with 'Windex' (50% paint + 50% Windex), and applied with a simple single-action Badger airbrush. (The airbrush was powered with a 'Harbor Freight' airbrush air compressor.) I airbrushed the parts before punching them out of the sheets. (This kept the paint off the edges of parts, as I did not want ANY paint on the edges of the gears.) One of the sheets of parts was all gears, and the entire sheet was airbrushed yellow on both sides. The other sheet had parts that I wanted mostly green, with some that were yellow. To keep the colors separate, I made Xerox copies of both sides of the part sheet, and from this paper copy, cut out the areas that had the parts that I wanted to paint yellow. I then used the cutout sheets as 'spray masks' by taping them to the part sheet. This painting technique worked very well. However, I did notice that the part sheets had a slight warp to them after painting, due to the water content of the paint. I do not believe that this warping or the painting process in any way affected the fit and function of the parts. The faces of the headlights were painted with Tamiya acrylic chrome-silver. I did not paint any of the toothpick-axles of the rotating gears, but I did paint (yellow) the toothpicks that made of the front grille, the rubber-band guide wheels, and the axle of the control lever. I am very pleased with how well this painting technique worked, and I look forward to applying it to my next UGears kit, which is the theater.

    This is my second UGears kit; my first was the timer. (I will post pictures of that soon.)
