Sorry, but I can help you a little.
But I do not know all the details.
Maybe someone else can give some more information?

Grizly,

My little help for finding the quarter deck or super structure:

http://www.engr.mun.ca/~cdaley/5003/ship_terms.pdf

But there will be better ways to find out what is ment by super structure.
Like giving Google the words: "HMS Hood quarter deck" and it will show us the quarter deck in pictures and words.
That's my way of translating it into Dutch.

Builder, Again, your input is greatly appreciated. I'm currently painting both funnel assemblies and once done I will turn my attention to adding the bell to the rear of the quarterdeck/aft superstructure.

a polite word to Pontos, I do feel that you should revisit the resin parts in the kit, some of these are far too small/fragile to do in resin, I wonder how many rejects you have? so far I have battled through but only from using great care, I'm not looking forward to the 0.5 inch MG's whose housing alone are likely to fall apart as soon as they are touched. These things have to be handled to construct and I suspect will fall apart when attempted? Also there are many air holes in things like the cleats and R24 fixings. IMHO these should have been done in white metal and brass etch. I have no idea why the chain lines for the anchor cables have been done in resin either when they could have been done in etch which would have been far more suitable. My other concern which I mentioned before is the lack of written instructions, this isn't a cheap kit and I think such things should be addressed in the future..

kind regards

Pete
