Re: Two hangar decks
The manufacturer of this kit should have been told about the existence of two hangar decks on Glorious. The lower hangar was at the level of the quarterdeck, in her final form. From the pictures of the model, there is a projecting deck at the back of the hangar block one deck height above the quarterdeck, and the roller door is at that level (split between the two hangars on the actual ship). The photo of the unfinished kit hull seems to indicate a hangar floor at that same one-deck-too-high level, with no second hangar deck above. To correct this kit, the existing hangar deck would have to be ground down to the proper level so there would be room enough to add the upper hangar. (At the level of the lower flying-off deck forward - how did the manufacturer miss that correlation?)
There are two hangar decks on Glorious. Which one do you refer to?
