|The cab went on, polling pockets and link & pin coupler.|

|I think this is a good photo showing what can be done via 3D printing. I suppose this COULD be done using Styrene .. but I doubt that I could. Certainly not this well.|
I wanted to get some color on the 3D parts .. like anyone else I wanted to see how they would look painted. Since I was planning for this to be a VERY used vehicle I put down a rusty undercoat.
This is from a rattle-can of Rust-Oleum. I didn’t try for a smooth coat .. in fact held the can back a bit so I would get texture.
The rivets on the cab are actually decals. They are from Archer and IMO worked quite well.
The rusty surface came out well I think. I used washes of thinned orangy/brown oils.
