    Vinyl that looks like deck planking?

    Hey! Does anyone know of a vinyl material that looks like scale deck planking? Something that looks like that decal that comes with the Kyosho Fairwind 900?

    I want to make part of the upper deck on the Fairwind I have look like wood, but don't want to go to the trouble of painting it.

    I have tried looking at craft shops in the doll house department, but no luck.

    I don't how it would work or how long it would last, but I have seen woodgrain decals used on cars and for hobby use.

    Stripeman.com

    3M-Woodgrain vinyl info

    Woodgrain decals for hobby use

    I bet you could cut it into strips and then apply it in rows.

    (Search on woodgrain decal for more info...)

    I thought about that, but being water slide, I think it would come off rather quickly.

    I don't think that auto decals (stripeman.com) are water slide, since they are made to go on the side of cars.

    Silly me I only, I only looked at the last link! That 3m vinyl might work, and they sell it in 1/2' strips in addition to wider versions!

    If you try it, let me know how it works. That might be an interesting way to spruce up an otherwise dull boat.

    Dollhouse stuff!

    Take a look at dollhouse suppliers. They sell flooring.

    How's about using (*gasp*) wood? Decking isn't that hard.

    And, I think you can get small pieces of veneer at home depot-type stores.......
