Putting together the engine room and all of the bottoms structures will be fun...I’m doing my best to read, check against the drawings, look at the pictures, think about it....7C367A8D-2E14-47D0-B758-BD165F453E61.thumb.jpeg.0f442a1c91c3293f3b542a84f6a64d41.jpeg

this pictures shows you how the slot is not nearly wide enough for the plywood...but I need to figure out how to make the structures the correct size and maximize glueing and strength, without creating interference.  Fun!

Wow that was quick Lol. Very nice job on the deck planking. Is that the pattern called for in the instructions or one of your own design? Either way I like it. Like I said I have the newer version of this kit waiting so I will be following along with interest.

This is the pattern that this older kit calls for (or atleast what I can see from the instructions). I noticed an older kit on this site that ended up doing stripes on the decks with the dark and light wood, but I liked the look on the box and tried to emulate that.

Yes they are close for sure, mine did not come with the instructions you are showing.  The one I have comes with written instructions and three plan sheets.  There are no real logs for the old kit so it’s been a learning process.  I thought about doing the pattern as you show it but I liked the picture and directions that came with my model.
