Okay - now I am getting frustrated !!   I am trying to put the second deck on the ship - as instructed I cut it in half prior to planking some of the deck.   Try as I might, I cannot get the deck to fit onto the main gun deck.  As far as I can tell, there are no instructions/guidance as to how far above the main gun deck the second deck will lie.  Any help would certainly be appreciated.  I got back into ship modelling a little while ago and apart from this difficulty am really enjoying the build.  Thanks.

Shortgrass, Hope you don't mind but I can only address the distance between decks.   Assuming you are building POB,  I measured from the top of the gun deck beams to the top of the QD beams at the center line in a couple places and from the top of the GD beams to the Forecastle beams at the center line.   They are marked on the drawing below.  These are real world dimensions so you need to adjust for the scale to which you are building.  I assume you have already done so, but if not, you can open and copy a high def image of this contemporary drawing of Fly 1776 on Wikipedia https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/84/FLY_1776_RMG_J7978.png

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
