So that trailer is an example of "uncharted territory" and you "jumping in the deep end"?  I jump in the same deep end and I drown, you win gold medals and set world records. Just plain not fair..

After 24 pages and nearly 500 replies to this absolutely brilliant build, I'm still in awe at your abilities... 

 

Thank you for sharing this with us all. 

Happy Holidays....

So lately I've been doing a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff, like filling sanding, priming, sanding, glueing, etc...  But I have also taken a stab at doing some wood grain. I used a variation of dark and light yellow craft paint for the base coat and a tube of really dark brown, raw umber I think, Artists oil paint. Most tutorials suggest to use an acrylic like testors or vallejo for the base coat, and after using the craft paint, I would also suggest it..  lol  Anyway, here's what I've come up with.

 

Chopped sides and tailgate:

Interior roof slats/support:

Finally, the floorboards. Interior and underneath:

these still need to be treated with a transparent yellow or orange, (or a combo of the two) and them cleared.  but I'm fairly happy with them so far.   I hope you like them and I look forward to any comments/criticism.

 

 

 

Before I end, I tried something not knowing or expecting much... And, I'm actually quite surprised.  This was done on the back (unpainted) side of the scratchbuilt roof. Besides the Artist oil paint that found its way through the small cracks from the other side, the only thing I used was a yellow highliter and a light brown crayola supertips marker directly on top of the bare white styrene.  let me know what you think...

Not too bad IMO... I mean it could obviously use some fine tuning regarding the placement of the artists oil, but I think this method has some amazing potential... 

 

thanks for looking...

google "Uschi fine grain veneer" for an excellent tutorial

Good stuff.. just wish there was a video tutorial. Although not quite the same results as Uschi, I've found a couple tutorials on youtube. Scalemodeladdict has a good one that is not very "grainy", which is what I'm looking for.

 

thx everyone for the nice comments.. more to come slowly, but surely.
