Frickin' awesome! Give me a quick tip on that wood grain. I have something coming off soon that would benefit ;) 

Thank's James.:thumbsup2:

 

Well, first base need's a semi gloss or gloss coat. 

 

Start from this aspect :

Now the trick is to use minimum 3 flat brushes. With the first brush you blend the dots into each other with long streaks. In between you clean your brush onto a paper towl. Important, do not use any thinner or solvent to clean your brush or thin your oil paint. Take the second clean brush and again do the same, you can change direction of streaks. You will see that the pattern get's finer according as you will use another brush. Repeat this step until you are satisfied with the result.

 

This is the first blend

Second blend

And last

I hope this gives a good image James.

Thank you Danny. I will Keep your very convincing technique in mind and will do a Little shootout between the oils and the HGW-Decals when I start my build.

Cheers Rob

Wow that wood effect is spot on. 

I have tried two methods to simulate wood 1st was a mix I came up with, this was tried by a couple of guys on this site. But didn't work out for them so this has been shelved. 

The second was a garden fence treatment, very much like a coloured varnish used similar techniques to you,great if you're looking for a quick affect. 

But your finish looks so convincing great job,love the map.

I have a stupid paint question...  With the oils, how long do they need to cure after painting?  My only current experience with oil paints is on canvas, and they take days/weeks to cure.  I somehow suspect that you have a way around that issue...?

When i do my wood grain work with oils, i leave them for over a week to cure. But there's a additive that fastens the drying time to only one day. I did not use this so i don't know if it's really working but i hear good reviews of it.

Hi Guy's,

 

lot's of people asked me regarding my wood grain technique how i achieve that result. So at first i had a plan to shoot a video of the WIP, but as i am no video guy, and my English isn't really what it should to be, i decided to shoot some extra photo's with the explanation of the several step's that need's to be taken.

 

I added some explanation into the photo's themselves so it is easy to copy them with the explanation.

 

I hope they are of some use to you guy's.

 

Ok, here we go:popcorn:

This whole piece takes about ten minutes to go from a plastic part to a wooden part with this technique.

The final result look's like this :

Due to the use of the oil paint, the drying time will be around a week. There are additives to get a quicker drying time, but i didn't use them yet with this technique.

Awesome tutorial!  Many thanks..

 

My first attempt on this will be a 1:24 scale wooden bucket from Shapeways.  I'll need to do the interior, exterior and bottom - so I'll use the bottom as my practice bit... :)

 

i have had a set of wood grain decals in 1:24, but I'm really not thrilled with them (they're intended for use on model cars and seem a bit crude), so this is a great chance for me to learn a new technique

Great Tutorial Danny, this will help a lot and the results are really convincing. For me the replication of Wood was always a Little mystery, since my own Tests didn't result in a realistic Wood effect. So knock on Wood mate and you are the "Honour Woody" of the day :D

Thanks Rob

Today i made some progress on the Fee.

 

Time to glue the bottom armor plate onto the fuselage

This was already painted in a black primer coat and today i painted the iron coat on it.

Next step, the landing gear. I dry-fitted each part onto the fuselage and glued only the part's together.

After the glue dried, i removed the landing gear from the fuselage to ease the painting proces.

The early balcony machine-gun mount was also glued together and afterwards removed.

Finally i made an early start on the 120 hp Beardmore engine also.
