I've enjoyed the posts concerning decks of flats and the weathering ofthe body?
It seems to me that any CA would set too quick to get the exactI have become a conver to real wooden decksd as well, but I build them
board by board <G>. I attach the boards using a slower setting CA (15-30
seconds or so) and not the super thin stuff. The same would work for the
laser cut decks.
Absolutely weather you decks before they are installed. I used brown and
black shoe dyes in varying amounts to get anything from new wood to silver
grey old wood. The body should be painted and weathered, at least
partially, then the decks attached, and the weathering blended...
My next project is to make the decks on a couple of brass PRR F22 gun
flats look like real wood (since I can't use real wood for them) <VBG>
