Very Nicely done. The wood grain effect not only looks realistic but contrasts with the Aluminum metal for a striking finished presentation.

Thanks I was wondering how well it would come out this is the first wood I've done. I think I'll be doing a few more.

I used Uschi decals plus True earth pigments to paint some of the wood.

Its the Eduard 1/48 scale part of the old double boxing. Thanks I wasn't sure what the final product would look like I was very pleased with how it turned out.
