Thanks Mark ,so i received pack 20 which has the first deck pieces and metal frame work and metal posts for holding the flight deck in place also thick wire for the bracing,NOW word of warning here for anyone building this model the flight deck comes in several parts and the wood effect cardboard is glued to this ,the decks themselves are 3 mm ply, now looking at another modeler`s build he explains that when you apply the cardboard to the ply it tends to warp the deck,so he did the following which i`m going to follow he replaced the 5 middle parts of the deck with one single piece of 3 mm perspex and only used the bow and stern ply, so then he glued this permantley down so you can`t see the internals but has he points out over time will the ply from the 7 parts warp even further due to warm and cold conditions changing where you keep the model .so has i say i will be doing what this guy has done to use the bow and stern ply with all the metal work attached then use a single piece of perspex for the remainder then cover the flight deck with 0.5 #2 mm lime strip there by giving it a more realistic appearance but i won`t be able to show the internals which are not well detailed anyway,so the flight deck will be full of aircraft :D will post pictures asap regards Phil.

Some very nice work out there Tigerace.
K for that beautiful job.
Unfortunately this is not my ship.
To much in stash, like HMS Cossack, DKM Prinz Eugen and HMS Suffolk.
And working on HMS Hood and DKM Bismarck.
Many years to go I'm afraid.
Cheers from the Netherlands.
Building the Bismarck.
HMS Hood on the shelf for a while.
Prinz Eugen issues 1-135 in stash.
