I am building the Shipyard and have gotten to the ship. I would like the ship to look like new wood similar to the strip wood color before it is stained. All of the surrounding platforms and supports would be worn and weathered but not the ship structure. It seems logical to me to assemble the individual components, sand off the laser burns and then paint the assembly with Floquil earth which is what I have done in the Fine Scale kits I have built to make the castings look like wood. Is there something else I should try?
