The steel pan logo. With the exception of the round grey outer border, the design was hand painted on. The tail was lightly brushed with Model Master clear flat and the logo was drawn on with a drafting pencil. It was then painted with a 2/0 brush.

Lettering was created with the Sure Thing Decal Maker software. The Lt Grey font was too light and had to be overpainted with Lt Grey paint.
