1/200 Buckley class Destroyer

hello!! this is my ship..........build from official plans ....the method of construction is the following: i glue a copy of the deck plan into the thin brown cardboard and then both of them over the white thick (1mm) cardboard..then i cut a little over the centreline in order to fold in 2...i check the edges of the deck to fit exactly and not the centreline of the deck!!...next with some drops of glue i ensured the stability .....then sanding the 2 pieces together gave me an extreme accurate deck!! ... the same was done with the frames....all the frames are 1mm inside the edge of the deck in order to put next the 3mm (width) stripes of the brown cardboard...i need it about 3 or 4 layers of these stripes to "dress up" the ship....in the photos are only the 2 first layers ....then i will brush resin to make it like plastic because the next step is to make a mold for resin copies....thanks all of you!!
