Matt Smurfmm Hey everybody, didnt realize questions where hanging out unanswered. I used a wood grain photo etch stencil for the props. Sprayed a darker brown and then held the stencil over and sprayed a light gray. Finally shot some clear varnish over it. I was a little too rough and ended up destroying the stencil and I think I could have used more contrasting colors. Ive learned a ton since I finished this model almost a year ago, would be better today. Also, dont chose Kitty Hawk to get back into modeling after a 20 year break.

Derek Post Hahahaha Yes the KH kit is a challenge. Thanks for the info on how you got the wood grain! Nice job.
Matt Smurfmm Sorry I should have written some closing thoughts on this one. Got it done and gave it to my friend as he was leaving the unit. I almost screwed up the whole model with panel line detail at the end. The Testors Gloss coat I used didnt put down the varnish that I needed and I left the panel line on too long. When I went to wipe it off it was semi permanent and I scrubbed so hard I went down to plastic in spots. Some creative brushwork mostly saved things, but nearly disaster. Satin varnish to seal it and I think it was very well received. Also I screwed up the color of the missiles...I should have remembered low vis grey.
