Did you only get 1 bag of green plates?
I had 1 bag. It was more than enough. I had some leftover. You can try estimating how many you need. Try weighing a hundred plates and then weigh whole bag. From this you will figure out total length.

This looks good enough but each step must be parallel to ground. Ship hull has curvature. Angle profile must be grinded to match the hull curvature. As result nothing is left from one flange of this angle at some most curvy parts of hull. I decided I cannot use the angle profile. So I had to come up with something else. After pondering over this issue for a few days I decided making these steps as a composition of two 1 mm thick wood profiles. This is what I got. B1FF1DA6-9DDB-42DA-BA4A-1B1F3CA1B7F2.jpeg

I think it is much closer representation of actual steps. When producing bottom profile I used this self made jig. I remember someone on forums showed a similar jig sold on eBay. They asked if it is worthy item to buy. Then I commented I doubted it could work. Now I made up similar jig on my own. Guys it really works. I recommend this. 6F881906-6173-4A1F-BCA3-6602D411F95C.jpeg

Here I am comparing the deadeye chain plates. On the left is one from kit. On the right is one I just scratch built. It will be blackened later of course. Which one looks more appealing to you? Buy the way this is my first experience with silver soldering after I learned it thru Jimsky videos. :)

How are yo going to do the yellow/black striping? Your wales don't line up. Look at fig 318. Isn't the black wales supposed to run into the black part of the stern. (below and in between windows.)

Hello Y.T. Your first soldering experience looks very good. Thumbs-Up However, the chainplate on the left (kit supplied) to me - oversized, and scratch-build is a bit undersized. You may want to find a wire the size in between those two. While it looks undersized to me, the nails head add to this. If you make a decision to go with the one you scratch build, consider finding nails with the smaller head for sure. ;) Hope you don't mind my comments.

Thanks Jim. You might be right. I already ordered a wire with diameter in between these two. The nails are much bigger problem. I have no idea where to find ones with small heads.

I like the black wash on grates, makes them look used and weathered a bit, but not heavy painted.

I like your home made chain plate much better than kit supplied.

One of the ways to make the head smaller is to tight the pin (nail) in your roto tool, while it is rotated, touch the head against sandpaper laying flat on a hard surface. It will shave the head and make it smaller. ;)

Hi Jim. It will be my pleasure to explain. I started with drawing rigols to my 1:90 scale in AutoCAD. I printed them on paper with laser printer. Then I glued images on wood sheet. I used coffee stirring sticks for wood. Then I saw them out on scroll saw. I used tiny jeweller saw blade.

Then I filed the shapes around with needle files. For the groove along rigol profiles I used Dremel carving tool with tiny round tip. Tool was propelled by Proxxon rotary tool with Proxxon bore extension. For final finishing I used sharpened broken off tip of blade #11. See below.
