Here is my idea for creating the “wood floor” look in an aircraft. It also works for ammo crates.

I am building the 1/32 scale B-17G from HK Models; that’s the floor assembly you see here, 1. To create the wood effect, simply find a piece of scrapbooking paper that suits your needs for color, texture, and pattern. Then cut pieces to fit your application, 2. Measure twice, cut once if possible!

Spray glue (Elmer’s acid-free works for me) on the paper and then stick it on the model piece that you want to look like wood. After it dries, you simply trim the edges, 3. You can weather it to the degree you want and add other furniture or interior detail. Then glue it to the model, 4. Simple!

This not only keeps your model’s interior light, it ensures that other interior parts will fit with ease.
