Heres the way i paint a wood effect on my On30 coaches

1st i clean up the Bachmann coaches then give them the coat of grey primer from a spray can
Image

Next is to give the coach a base coat as i am in the UK i use Phoenix Precision paints which is a solvent paint called teak base coat
the colour is a light Brown/cream which i apply with a brush
Image

Once this has had 2 or 3 day to dry & harden off i put on the next colour as washers building them up till i get what i am looking for, Again the paint is from Phoenix this time its called Golded Teak top coat the colour is a mid redish brown
Image

I then put the coach back togetter & weather it if i need to


the coaches are now put back togetter Next is to start weathering
Image

Image

Image

Well the 3 coaches are finished with a wash of mat black & are now ready to work on my layouts

Useful info that I have been contemplating having some teak stock, probably NPCS, for forthcoming layouts, but have always baulked at the teak effect.
