Painting Tanks

These are the slush cast model tanks that I think were made by a company named Barclay in the 1930s.
I have stripped their paint off and removed a number of dents.  One of the tanks had a crack in it and I patched it with epoxy glue.  Since I plan to repaint these I buy old ratty dented tanks.  That way the collectors can have the nice ones and I get cheaper tanks.
One of these tanks had the gun barrel broken off.  I will replace it with a longer barrel.  My plan is to make it the anti-tank support tank for the five tank platoon.  I am ready to paint them with Rust-Oleum gray primer.  After that they will be painted olive drab from Testors.
