Slight change of plan in terms of deck, I was hoping to add planking but after looking at the job i think its going to be too complex for me, the issue is the Bulwark is in the way, as usually I'm guessing decking would be done before the bulwark is fit in place but as this hull came with the bulwark s i didn't have that option!


So I've decided I'm just going to do the deck as it is, I know some will say "it shouldn't have planks anyway" but I'm not building my TID to any particular TID that existed, although the rest of the TID will be pretty much the same as the 1:1, the deck i really did want to plank! :(


oh well, I'm still happy with how it is turning out so far considering its my 1st model boat build :)


here's rest of bulwark supports done, i just need to cut out the rat holes & add the thin front plate for each (these are not fixed in place yet i just placed them in position for phots) :)

Hi, suggest you make the stay cuts a little bigger as by the time you get the paint on the space will vanish and the water will not drain through. nemesis

Deck all filled & sanded ready for primer, before that i will be fitting the bulwark supports, talking of which, i will be adding the front edge for each bulwark before fixing them to deck. Here's couple of pics of the superstructure, the stack isn't fixed yet as I'm still finishing it off.
