I have made the C600 Ford stake truck that you did a review of and would like to make a comment. I did the stake sides and the deck floor, with a felt marker. Here in Canada we can by 3 shades of brown (Light, Medium, and Dark) for a dollar at the ” Dollarama ” store. I have also used this technique for the wood grain on Semi flat deck trailers. anything with the woodgrain showing thru .
Hope this is of some help. I love your work.

I, too having the same problem as Chris…I can’t seem to download the “How to open doors” tutorial.
I DO enjoy your web site. It is very informative, funny, diverse subject matter (for modelers). I especially like the ‘step by step’ photos plus the narrative on the projects. Keep it up!!

Respectifully, Rick Fletcher
PS: I have built models since they were balsa wood (late ’40s)
