I don't know of any articles but using kit decals or aftermarket has always worked well for me.

I use the decals for the flat portion and have perfected a technique for the surrounding raised wood moldings.

It took time to teach myself along with several failures, but if you stay commotted and have some skills, you should eventuall get it.

It just takes determination and some practice Thumbs Up.

Here's the last woody I did and have several more on my to do list, but I have to make them first.

Love Velocity channel, Mecum Auctions and Barrett/Jackson auctions

The October 1996 issue of Scale Autho enthusiast has a very detailed article on painting plastic to simulate wood, running to 6 pages. It is excellent.

If you can't get access to it, send me a PM with your email address, and I'll scan it for you.

Cheers, Rob

I do all my "woodgraining" with apple barrell craft paint from walmart and the detailer yellow, first i paint a good coat of light tan or ivory, let that dry completly then dry brush on a darker brown (dont use black , too dark) then while its still wet i paint a good wet coat of the Detalier yellow, it blends melts the colors together and gives a nice warm rich wood look. Then when it dry you can clear it with just about anything, i haves used testors laquer, future, dupli-color perfect match with no ill effects.

check out my facebook page here for a tutorial i made with pics
