I think you are right about that, but a very high end collector will ask because I see models in galleries that state the wood used and these are $20,000.00 models
I am glad we agree upon! This is exactly my point, a collectible model will be made out of finest wood possible\available because that timber will be included in the total price of the model, so in this case, the wood will add to the value.

It is looking like very small grain and a beautiful light color - I am looking forward to see this timber as deck-planks Thumbsup
Hi Uwek,
Yes, I have had Houn pine that ranges from the light color to a honey color the darker color being heavier and tougher. Huon pine is a very slow growing timber think thousand years ,very fine grain, lovely to work with with a unique smell, although if you want to bend it it needs to be steamed in my experience.
Cheers,
Stephen.
