Not too sure of your problem Nick, as far as I can recal Tomicks or mag's instructions seem fairly clear?

hi jeff its not so much of a problem it just doesnt seem right that they would of had to walk across the gratin to use the ladder where as the other ladder is accessed from the deck just seems abit odd to me and cant find any plans or photos of the real thing to check

having looked at anatomy of the ship the model does look to be correct although i would agree it looks odd. the two ladders should descent towards themselves.

I see what you mean now, I felt the same about going directly off the steps and onto the grating so made the steps using smaller pieces of wood so that they are not as chunky which means there is a small gap between the bottom of the steps and the grating!
Some of the guy's have also made the gratings narrower.
Thought I had a pic but can't find it!! sorry!

Hi Shipmates! Cool

Here is the link from my diary Post #170 about reducing the grates, before and after photo's are shown:-

Post #171 shows how the pillars were reduced and moved onto the grate so that the skid beam fitted onto the pillars better :-
