I ran across this and thought I would share:

I know it's not on a model car, but his step-by-step method should easily transfer to cars.  It also shows how to get the different shades of wood desired.

Thanks for sharing that tutorial.  Looks like it would take some investment to get going.

Good tutorial. One thing that a lot of people forget when woodgraining is that almost all woodgrain has a bit of orange and yellow. You really have to experiment to get the look right, once you are there it all sort of clicks. The other thing is to save those scraggly mangey looking old brushes, they are great for laying down grain patterns.
