  • Question:
    Planking - What are the variants of planking a deck ?
  • Answers:

  • In order of difficulties:
  • 1. Draw a false floor with a pencil (Instructions given in some kits).
  • 2. The "planks" have the length of the deck.
  • 3. Cut the "planks" according to the model scale and put them by alternating the joints.
  • 4. Peg the laid planks following the method 3.
  • 5. Add to methods 3 and 4 a planking with joggled ends (see photo).
  • Generally the strips supplied with kits are a little bit too wide if we consider the scale of the model.
