I used wooden strips from my Albatros wooden model on this model. I added the strips because the floor was scratched. I fitted the strips several times to make sure they fit perfectly. I used super glue to stick them on. It took a long time, but I think it looks great now.
I glued on the front, side, and rear pieces with super glue. I then took my motor tool and cut out the material that over hanged on the deck. After some cutting and sanding the deck pieces fit snug on the hull rails.
