Taking a break from the hull, so I'll do some hatch covers. Tackling the gratings first the English(?) instructions advise 'From the four grill-elements by using the indispensable number of milled bars'. Yes, I had to read it a few times, too; sometimes Google Translate isn't all it is cracked up to be, I guess!
Before I fitted the decks I made paper templates of the hatch holes to help with the shaping -

In building the gratings I found that there was not enough lengths of the 'indispensable number of milled bars'. This is as far as I got with four small gratings still to build -

So I had to pull apart some of the gratings I had already built (luckily I had not yet used any glue) and replace the pieces with off-cuts from the longer edges, the joint being on the underside so it is not seen. Anyway, we got there in the end -

The remaining hatches are planked and I stuck the planking directly onto the paper templates for the appropriate hatch. In order to give some strength for sanding/shaping I stuck some battens on the underside as shown -

Shaped and ready to stain. Note that the hatches are planked in a port/stbd direction, not stem to stern as a deck is, so it should give an interesting contrast -
