Scout Trooper – Armor – Back Tank Topper – Painting

Adding Color…

Making it more screen accurate…

The Tank Topper needs to get some detail paint work…

I used a small brush to paint the red.

Then, applied a second coat of red…

And, then a third coat of red. The red is nice and intense now.

Then, I used some black to clean up where the red got up on the sides of the little “trench”.

For the white disc, I’m going to try using masking tape and a paint marker. First, I drew the circle onto the tape…

Then I cut the circle out with an exacto…

Removal of the circle…

The mask was then placed into the correct position on the tank topper.

The paint marker…

I applied some white…

After a few more coats of white, I removed the mask. It’s not perfect, but I think I should be able to clean it up…

After a little bit of cleaning up. That looks like it should do.
