Hello Les here. I have a question about after market supplied goodies for your deck work. If a ship is scaled at 1/64 would a binnacle compass or windlass etc. be out of scale on a 1/60 scale model? The reason I ask is that I don't have the skill level to build a 1/64 scale brass compass or binnacle. So I don't want to get in a position where deck items are too large or too small and ruin the look.

It would be a bit small but not much.  The catch here is that many times the kit manufacturers use parts that are out of scale due to cost so you'll probably be closer than most of the kit items.  I'd say go for it.
