One of the problems I notice about many scratchbuilds is the author does not build massive enough. Particularly floors, walls, hydraulic cylinders/pistons and in this case the DECK.
My deck right now is 19,44 MM (A skosh over 49/64 inch) thick; about 4 feet 8 inches thick. Still seems rather thin to me but I still have to add the bulwarks which will double the thickness in appearance at least.
The quarter view shows the depth of the model which suits my eye for the time being.
And the side view shows I need to increase the rear overhang by about 25 scale feet. to allow for the main Cathedral/Fortification
Omnissiah bless me.
