The Deckhouse:

The Deckhouse is at minimum four pieces. A front, two sides and a back.

The front piece is built in a similar manner as the Pilot house. I’m going to wait until all the pieces are ready for assembly before attaching the final overlay.

The back piece went together fairly quickly, I just had to add the window frames and overlay the scribed siding.

The sides proved interesting. They are shaped top and bottom to fit the curve of the deck. The build instructions indicate one should add a strip to the tops, as shown in the photo, I added additional pieces to make the side more rigid.

The back of the Deckhouse with the scribed siding.

The start of a puzzle. Adding the scribed siding to the sides.

I’m going to have to think about this. The curve of the top and bottom of the sides preclude lining up the scribed piece with the lines running horizontally. Cutting and fitting will leave a lot joints that will need work.

I’m sort of leaning towards “planking” following the curve of the side and adding frames around the windows and doors.

Taking note, taking a lots of notes and idea :D
Indeed, I’m inventing as I build. I would think that an R/C version would require a lot of “firming up” of the Deckhouse sides as well as someway to attach it to the hull. There are a few additions to eventually add to that part of the build, I’m thinking that my work will help with that.
