After some very enjoyable painting sessions the model of my granddad's Fordson is ready to go into action with the Marshall's thresher. Painted in 'French Blue' from Humbrol the tractor has been subject to some paint fading with white oil paint and dirtying with black and umber oil washes. I applied rust, also with oil paint, before I gave the model a coat of matt varnish. Then the model received a layer of dust with heavily thinned paint from the air brush and some pastel chalk. I finished by adding a few scratches and worn areas with a soft pencil.
