Superb modeling, I never would've known that isn't laser-cut wood strips!

How'd you do it? Never mind, allow me: ;)

Thanks everyone. That weathering is new and I hope to have an article upcoming. It took awhile to figure out how to get the new and old wood look blended.
Styrene is easier to make look like wood in the smaller scales. Wood like water doesn't scale down.
