    Hello again
    I’ll experiment with various options I have in mind and see what I can cope with. With hindsight I wish I’d spent more time on the window openings before I assembled the cabins as this will affect the frames
    Cheers brian

    Hi,
    As you brobably know I am a great believer in using plastic card or even the plastic from food containers.
    Maybe you could make them from plastic that way you could make them more true to scale.
    I think that no matter how you make them they will end up looking fantastic.
    Keep up the good work, I will be keeping my eye on your build.

    Martin.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Thank you Colin, it’s taken a lot of time but I have enjoyed the challenge. I think I have some part way through pictures, if I have them I may upload a separate post
    Thanks again

    Hello Martin
    Thank you for that, I’m not sure yet, I may end up using the frames supplied with the model although they are very thick. Not sure either how to tackle the windscreen surround.

    This is one of the best Fairey decks I have ever seen on a model, you should put it in its own listing. I applaud your workmanship and patience. Keep it up shipmate.
    Cheers Colin. πŸ‘

    Thank you. I used thin strips of mahogany between each β€˜plank’. The planks are 2mm thick and the mahogany 2mm x 0.7mm thick. I stuck down a plank and then stuck a mahogany strip to the side of the plank working from the outside to the inside.
    As the deck was now raised I extended the edges of the superstructure by 2mm to make sure the cabins still fitted securely

    Excellent workmanship.
    What do you put in between the planks?

    I am Sorry to hear that.
    I bet you were not a happy bunny when that happened.
    I also have had things like that happen to me in the past and to this day I cannot understand why, especially when you test it time after time and it works fine then it doesn't.
