Rusty,It's similar to an A&I ink wash but its thicker. You can see where I used it on this truck, the front grille, side grilles and I use it between the spokes on the wheels. Do a Google search and you can buy it in different colors but I only use the black  Raymo

This morning I mentioned I finished the tractor last night. I tried to fix Farmer Fred's black eye, and then attached him to the seat with some 5-minute epoxy. After that, I installed the steering wheel  and the building part was done. I broke out the weathering powders and hit the wheels with a little rust and the tires with some mud. I also weathered up the exhaust stack and around the seat. So here it is, the final photos.   Raymo

Dan, another fantastic build!!!  ;D ;D ;D
 
I think Farmer Fred's black eye came from when he complained to his wife about his
'over easy eggs' !  ;D ;D ;D
 
I checked out 'The Detailer's' web site and think I'll try out the black, rust, and maybe a
couple more.
Thanks for the tip - that's what this site is all about!   8) 8) 8) 8)

Farmer Danny,
              I grew up on two family farms.
                         This particular tractor is known as a rower type 4010.
                                           My favorite type was the JD 4020 which was similar.
                                                                                Can't wait to see what you build next.
                                                                                                      Nice build buddy!  U-da-Man!
                                                                                                                                      Thanx Thom...
