USS Constitution Pack 2 – Stages 6 – 15

Stage 6 Contents: Hull frame, reinforcements and wood strip.

Take the Spar Deck from Stage 5 and draw a centre line with a pencil then mark two lines across the deck one at 27mm and the other at 60mm. Now prepare some more deck planks by cutting to a length of 65mm and then using a pencil to blacken the edges.

Start laying the planks on the spar deck ,lining up the first plank the centre line and making sure the end of the plank stops at the 60mm line then add a following plank along the centre line. Add the next plank so its end finishes on the 27mm line, Carry on adding planks until the deck has been covered but do not plank over the rear edge, leave to dry properly and then trim the excess planks from the edge of the deck.

Follow the edge of the deck only when trimming the planks do not cut the planks away from the edge mounting slots.

Stage 12

Stage twelve contents: Deck halves and wood strip.

Check the fit of the gun deck halves and adjust if needed then glue them in place on the rear deck beams. Once the glue is dry prepare more deck planks and glue them in place working outwards from the centre line. Next use a pencil to mark the trenails at the plank joints.

Sand the deck smooth but be aware that the planks are only 0.5mm thick so sand slowly and gently until you are happy with the finish. Next open out the holes for the masts.

The instructions advise to seal the deck and stain it but I stained first using an antique pine stain and then sealed with a matt varnish but you can use any stain of your choice or non at all if you prefer.

Stage complete.
