Bob,
 Nice work on the bridges. You mentioned you were trying to simulate Floquil Natural Pine Flo-Stain, what was your method ?

A little Tamiya brown, black and green in 91% alcohol. how much I don't know just go light on green. Then A&I wash. A little tweaking and testing you have what vendors charge allot for it's fun! I have never found a secret mix it's all different.
