Hi Michael you caught me just at the right time, here is a little tutorial for everyone showing how I do wooden effects.

This is what I used for the wellington but you can use whatever shades will work for you including mixing them.

First I put a base coat of the darker shade then let it dry.

Then I go over with the lighter shade but I knock some off the brush first so the bristles on the brush splay out a bit but don't take as much off as if you were dry brushing.

If the paint gets too dry and you keep brushing you can take the paint from underneath off like this.

All you have to do then is to go over with the paint you were using but much wetter so you cover the whole.

The next thing I do is to make a thinner mix of the first colour and have some of the normal thickness paint on the side.
 


Then you work it with up and down streaks with the wetter paint but still knock some off making the grain effect and if the paint is too light dip it into the darker colour you have on your pallet and keep going until you have the desired effect. Remember you can always mix the paints lighter or darker to get the right kind of wood.



I hope this is helpful to you and gives you another way of scratch building wood. It works great on floors of old planes.

Cheers and Stay Tooned. [thumb]

Thanks for the tutorial on how you got that amazing wood effect. The wear that you put into the wood along the walkway looks so realistic. I'm looking forward to what's next.

Hi everyone,

I've done a little more to the interior on the starboard side. There is more PE here then the port side.


As you can see here there is much less on the port side.


Here is an overall look at both sides and the interior before it goes together.


I still have some weathering to do inside before I close it up and of cause the gun turrets to build and a little more PE in the front end. I am having to leave this build for about the next month because I have to finish a build for my modelling club and if I don't crack on with that I will never finish it.

 So until then happy modelling and thanks for looking at my build.

Stay Tooned. [thumb]

Fantastic work on the interior, [thumb]

The instructions say that the fuselage is all green ??? had the idea that it was green, black, and canvas [confused]

This is a Trumpeter kit and it doesn't say what colour the interior should be and I went with the Interior Green because I like it, besides you are not going to see much when it is together.
