From Train to Armored Train-the Engine

I picked up this Lionel engine and a half dozen other pieces for nine dollars at the local swap meet
I decided to make this very used piece into an early 20th century armored train engine.  Four of the other pieces will eventually join until I have a full armored train.   The last piece is a complete engine that will remain unarmored.
First, the side panels...
with bolt heads added.
The armored  front and light...
with push arms and a second light added.
The far side has battle damage/repairs and additional bolts.
The scale looks passable for 28mm Pulp/Great War Era games. Next painting...
