I agree with you Rick. The AL kits as nicely done. Their instruction books are marvelous and the building materials are good quality. The treenailing pattern is for deck planking that is 6 to 11 inches across. There is two other patterns for planking that is less than 6 inches and one for palnking greater than 11 inches across.
I like the nail nailer from Amati (art 7384) for smaller nails. It works really great.
Keep up the good work.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Looks beautiful, the Nina has always been one of my favorite ships. Looking forward to watching the rest of the build.
