This my 2nd thread on the same topic it was suggested it would be better if I move to the build log so I apologize for the double thread.-R Only my 2nd wooden ship and with no experience at anything this complex and no instructions. I have the scale plans and some of the parts are sorted and identified but many are not. It's a giant 3D puzzle so I've a lot of questions so feel free to offer any advice or options. To solve any puzzle you start with what you know and reduce the size of the puzzle a section at a time. The fewer unidentified pieces that remain the simpler the puzzle. The hull frame is assembled and partially planked, top decks are planked. Today I began assembling the deck grates. There is one I can not identify nor can I find a clear picture on the web just one that's partially obscured. The obscured photo showed a corner of partially lowered grate. The attached photo of the plans show a circle in the middle of a doted line square, what exactly am I looking at here? This is located on the forward deck. Here is a picture of a finished Derfflinger it's also a Dikar like mine . you can see the lowered grate but that doesn't resemble what I see on the plan. My first thought was the galley may be under there and that the circular object is a smoke stack but there is nothing in my box of parts that resembles it, the parts list refers to it as 1A . Should I stick to the plans or modify it as the builder of the ship above?
