Does anyone have a good way of dealing with gaps between the inner wall of hull planking and the plywood deck provided in the kit?    The outer hull of my ship is wider than the plywood by about 5-10mm and I need to put in some timber so I can plank over the top.  Any suggestions on a clean way to do it?  Thanks

Look at how a real wooden ship was constructed. This should give you some ideas. I suppose the false? plywood deck is going to be planked over ? So there would be waterways all around the deck in front of the frames/stanchions. The space between the stanchions would be filled by 'filling' pieces. Details of the construction would have to worked out for the period and origin of your prototype.
