    Ya know when aging and weathering Sergio Leone Movie Set Diorama hardwoods I found found that the best way to do it is too weather it as it would do naturally,in other words from a polished finish to a dull.In this way you can retain the beauty of the grain as it seemingly ages.The birch floor for example was originally a gloss finish that was dulled using very fine sandpaper for the wear and tear, then chalk pastels representing the build up of crud over the years ,followed by a spray of matte acrylic Sergio Leone Movie Set Diorama fixative to hold it all in place.Later more crud can be built up in all the cracks and crevasses
    and to create shadows.

    Well I have decided to add a few more months work to the project.I was originally planning to save a little time by just weathering Sergio Leone Movie Set Diorama the exterior of this car but because nothing looks as good as the real thing,wood, I now plan to board it up instead.I have also opened up all the doors both interior and exterior for better camera angle shots of the interior.I will retain the red framed windows and stain the siding about the same green.
    On the roof it is presently what looks like a fine sandpaper type surface.Does anyone here know what may have been used on the real thing ? A tar paper or canvas material ?
    I could use a cloth backed sandpaper of appropriate grit and just paint it .Any ideas ?
