Now here is something a bit different. This is one of three wood paneling sheets that Aeromaster has produced. These are specifically designed for those natural wood WWI aircraft like the Albatros D.III/V and others who had bare plywood parts. You could also use the sheet for prop blades, I guess. There are no instructions as you just cut what you need for the current project and go from there. Like Bare Metal Foil, I'm sure that there will be a lot of waste so it might not be a bad idea to overdo it when buying this stuff.

This particular sheet is the middle color of the three. There is one that is a lighter shade and one much darker so that you can have all the bases covered. It looks quite convincing and should be even more so when applied to an aircraft. Heck, it even feels like wood grain!
