WGSF-48B has been designed following the input of the modelers community. The plywood sheets used in the aircraft industry were selected under the criteria of maximum stability. Therefore sheets without knotholes have been prefered. WGSF-48 "Knotless" redisplays this feature in order to recreate plywood as accurate as possible.

Please make yourself familiar with the effects by trying before in a testbed.
are not mandatory as on the WGC/WGF series but still are an option. If you wish to darken your wood a little bit, you may apply a glaze of burnt sienna. If you go that way, Uschi recommends toapply these colors on a rather semi flat surface.
This is to be recommended in order to allow a good spread and texture. After the glaze we seal everything again by using gloss clear acrylic.
