Applying Hasegawa Wooden Deck to the Hasegawa 1/350 Mikasa


Recommended Posts

Hi all;

 

I'm planning my next attempt at ship modelling – the 1/350 Hasegawa Mikasa.

After my initial foray into PE parts, I was interested in the wood deck that Hasegawa has available for this model, but had one major question...

 

Will I simply apply it over the plastic deck on the model? Or do I have to ‘shave down’ the deck details in the plastic before applying?

Any information would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!

From what I have seen from others on this site, eg @Old Collingwood or @RGL, it is a mix of both: some parts to be removed and replaced by PE, others remaining and sticking through the deck.

Thanks very much! I am also assuming it'll be some of both as you say. I hope it's not necessary to shave down all deck textures from the plastic, as that'll take a lot more patience than I possess!
