Chuck, if you enter "Fair American" in the search window, you will find four build logs currently in progress.  Good luck with your model!

in  my log I have not yet done that part but will soon be working on it.

if you start a log and post there with details we can try to work it out.

 

I have my hull planked and the main deck planked and need to update the log this weekend as I move along.

 

in my case I am making the great cabin open on the inside so my build is not exactly how the kit plans did it.

I'm building Fair American and cannot figure out the hatch coamings. The parts list states "upper hatch coaming" is 3/32 x 3/32 and "lower hatch coaming" is 5/32 x 5/32. First, what does upper and lower refer to? Second, the plans show the coamings on both hatches raised above the deck pad. But he deck pad is also 3/32 high which would make it even with at least one of the coamings. Help, please! How are the coamings for Fair American structured? Thanks.
