I took all the paint off of the tank except for the viking I found under the blue paint. I want to keep it and incorporate it into the design.



My thoughts right now are to

-just leave it metal and clear coat it several times
-leave it steel but paint white circles where the tank badge bondo is and hand paint racing numbers
-try to paint the whole tank one color and somehow keep the viking art


Do any of you have ideas or photo examples of things that might look cool?

First off, based on your prior build I say trust your gut.

Second, I'd actually go two tone with it and somehow incorporate both that white (perhaps off-white, as well as that golden brown color). It seems like the pair would be a good retro combination, and would make it easy to leave the viking in there (which I think kicks ass, by the way).

I'm glad you didn't get rid of it while taking the rest of the paint off.

I think the way the viking looks now is sick I would just clear it.

You know, there are a lot of talented airbrush artists here in Des Moines. Why not have them touch it up and "restore" it to the paint job it had when the viking was done?
