Hello everyone! I guess I need to post in the new members section but I've got a question. So I'm building my first model ever, the Occres dos amigos model kit, and I'm trying to fit the deck but (you'll have to excuse my ignorance in terminology here) I'm not sure how to go about it as where it glues down is curved. Do I use pins to hold it in place while the glue dries? Thanks!! Here'sPicture of curved area

Hi Slok

You do need to hold it down so it curves.  Normally it will curve fore and aft as well as to match the rounding of the frames (bulkheads in this case) athwartships.    If the initial decking is a piece of thin plywood and will get individual planks on top of this sheeting, pins are fine.  When doing individual planks, you can just hold them in place for a minute or less with your finger using carpenters' glue and they will stay down in place.  

Welcome to this motley crew of ours.
