            Ron,

            The primed tractors look good! That is a neat steam engine.

              Thanks for the comments Larry, Jerry and Scott, much appreciated.

              Spent some time last night doing some touch-up painting on the tractors and finished painting the steam engine.

              Highlighted the "Bates" name and added some panel liner to bring out the radiator and to dull down the tracks.

              Another view of the Bates tractor with panel liner highlighting the grilles on the side and generally making the tractor more dirty.

              The Cat with some "colour" added to the engine compartment to give it some variation. Also used panel liner to dull the treads.

              Another view of the Cat. One thing about close-up pictures, you can see where you missed paint.

              The painted steam engine ready for weathering.

                      Ron the tractors turned out really nice. The steam engine looks great and I really like the color you chose;
                      it should look even better after weathering. Nicely done.

                        Ron, the tractors are coming along, although the LH track on the Cat could probably use some maintenance. Loe the steam engine, and can even hear it one-lunging along...

                        Keep going!

                          I have a plan for that :-)

                          Looking good. I really like the paint on the steam engine. I may have to "borrow" and repaint mine.
