There is no wood in the cockpit - everything is plastic or brass. The wood
grain is the often described technique of a light coat of acrylic - such as
unbleached linen - streaked with a darker oil. The acrylic must be a matt,
for some "tooth" for the oil to grip, and I use a soft flat brush and just
add a little oil at a time until it is dark enough. If the grain isn't
right, just wipe the oil off and try again. Then leave it alone for a
couple of days to dry. Honestly, it takes only a little practice.
>what wood did you use that looks like such a good scale grain?'
