This is quite common in kits thet use standard parts in their kits which are not allways to scale. The more you fine tune this the better the result and that is what kit bashing is. Up to you.The second deck no 23 is ready. Planks are glued and centered. I found out after the second one, that the center plank has to be installed and glued on the ship rather than having a deck on a table. It will allow removing, at least for me, event a tiny 0.5mm misalignment, that I have with this deck as well.

For the third deck no 24, I am going to glue a plank while the deck is on the ship, and then move the deck to a table and continue. It's like the 100% dead center approach in my case .
So happy that I:
Also, I've found out that H.M.S. Victory 1:84 scale has 3mm width planking, my kit from constructo gives me 5mm width with 1:94 scale. Something in my kit is incorrect. 5mm multiply by 94 will be 47cm or the real scale. Kind of incorrect. What do you think?
- a) write down all my lessons learned and
- b) I will be way better with all these "new findings" when I will start the next model.
