The main emphasis here is on the Gallery Terrace and deck for this section. The instructions show the braces as glued in place on the rear Bulkhead, but when I tried to install the first Terrace, it would not fit. The Terrace has a protruding pattern that would not fit inbetween the braces. I figure out that the braces should NOT be installed at this time. The Terrace should be fitted first, and then the braces. The instructions are very much incorrect at this stage. I was deternined to demonstrate the sequence of events for me to correct this error AFTER I glued in the Braces.

According to instructions, it is time to glue in the False Deck. Reason is that there are Upper Deck Support Beams that will be glued on top of this Deck.

Making corrections to more problems. Cannons at rear deck are not at correct height, so I am having to make risers and adjust for proper angle.

Continue to work on Cannon placement adjustments. The sub deck has been painted black as obvious as I do not want any light reflections. I painted the dummy Carriages Red. The Cannons will be painted Flat Black, but not shown here yet.
