Step 22



I made another 6 eye bolt/ring combinations and painted them black.

Then I marked the deck according the the measurements from the instructions and drilled 6 1mm holes in the marked locations. The eye bolts were then glued in the holes.

Short step here.

Steps 23, 24, 25 and 26

In this step, I did a final fitting of the upper deck pieces (parts 52 and 53)

The frame positions were marked out on the underside of parts 52. The area that will become the ceiling of the lower deck area was painted with Vallerjo Fire red.

I chose to begin the planking of the dec pieces before installing them thinking it would be easier. This in fact caused some minor issues with finishing the planking.

The 4 deck pieces were then glued in place, weighted down and allowed to dry completely.

Next I finished planking around the perimeter of the deck.

The parts of the frames that protruded above the deck were trimmed level with the deck surface. The entire deck was then sanded smooth.

The end joints of the planking was simulated with pencil lines creating 'planks' that are 76mm in length. Nails were marked with 4 pencil dots at each joint.

Several coats of minwax satin polycrylic sealer was applied to finish off the deck.
