Revenge 1577 by olopa67 -Amati/Victory Models - scale 1:64

Recommended Posts

Just started The Revenge by Amati a couple days ago, after I build my new work bench. the frame is done and now I m proceeding to planking the lower deck .

I Have a very basic experience and hopping to find any kind of help of support from anyone willing to do it. 

I just would like to apologize in advance for my English which I know is not the best being Italian my first language, so please do not shoot on the piano player 🙂

Lower deck planked with no major issues, the instruction shows the deck in one single piece but it come actually split in two, not a problem just glued the two halves. After getting few advice from more expert members I decided for 10cm planks with a slide up of 2.5cm and a pattern of 4 repetitions.
I took the risk to buff the deck with some clear bench oil (was in the lower deck anyway ) you can see the difference  with the oil on end without it. Pretty happy with the result.
Should I apply varnish? Open for any advice.
For the more expert that will read this if they can spot any mistake or have any improvement or tips to give, I m very happy to receive them before the other decks start.

Lower deck glued with no issues. 
The support for the gun deck which have to be glued after the lower deck shows a gap (see picture) of about 1mm, so I have place a bit of wood (planks from a previous model with 0.5mm thickness) on both the ends. Don’t want any surprise later with alignments, two of the supports have some kind of slots and I try to have them aligned the best I can, just in case. Of course I have had trimmed the excess of the inserts 
