Hallo Matus,I found this document on internet. I already read it 2 times and probably will be again few times.
I am still miles from planking my build, but planning ahead.

I’m looking forward but not looking forward to doing the bottom rigging if you know what I mean. I am enjoying your build.
Great job @Hoffy...you are really making quick progress... May I ask what you used to color the deck please? Also, you mentioned that you used ink to color the black portions.... Are there advantages to using ink versus, say, black acrylic paint? Newbie here and am just trying to understand paints and stains... Thanks for your build log.Hey all thank you for all your Birthday Wishes I had a great day all be it quiet, the minister for finance gave me the go to order my next project which I had a hard time narrowing down what I wanted to tackle something different and something I had on my bucket list to build it came down to the Saturn V Apollo 11 Rocket 1/72 from Dragon it stands a 1500mm high so finding room to display it is
Thanks @Hoffy.... I was inspired by your build and ordered the BPearl kit from ZHL... now eagerly awaiting its arrival... Although I'm a newbie, I decided to dive right in with this model knowing that I can refer back to your build if I get in trouble. Have also been reading some of the other builds and am picking up lots of learnings... Bless you all.Gidday WarrLight it was the first time I had used ink I found it easier to cover than paint, paint tends to be gluggy where the ink is thin and a lot easier to apply, I used ink that was watered down probably 50/50 the deck was lacquered with a natural varnish then later aged with smudges of watered down ink to give the deck that dirty pirate ship look. One thing to be careful using the ink keep to applying it in small areas and don't saturate your brush with ink the same principal is used when applying stains wiping access off with clean clothe/paper towel, be patient take your time.
