-Pre shading effects...
...will "telegraph" through the decal as can be seen on the picture below
Post shading effects
... can be achieved using the so-called clear acrylics, such as Gunze´s and Tamiya´s smoke, yellow and orange. Use smoke for general light adjustments and yellow/orange for "tinting" of the panel concerned.
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.
This is just a rough sample but it shows the effect pretty clearly. Note the center-highlighted panels. The adjoining panels next to the decal are preshaded using dark yellow base, black preshading, a blending mist of flesh, followed by a blending and center-highlighting with radome.
The decal is applyed directly on those prep-works and sealed with clear.
The piece used on that spot is the "pale" part of the 2-sheet set. Each set comes including a "pale" and a "rich" sheet for some additional options of variation.
...now aint mandatory anymore, but still are an option. If you wish to darken your wood a little bit, just proceed based on the traditional way to render wood with an acrylic basecoat and a burnt sienna glaze.

What do they have in common?
They all are partially made of plywood. Just like the wings on this Me-163 Komet:
