3 (aft Grand staircase foyer).
aft Grand staircase is way too far forward and has to
be moved back by approx. 21mm.
forward line of the GSC has to be moved back to line
up with the aft side of the Tank Room above. This area
IS visible through the open promenade so we recommend
that this change be made.
either side of the aft GSC there were two cabins these
were occupied by Father Browne on the starboard side
A37 (until Queenstown) and Thomas Andrews on the port
make the changes calls again for some cutting out of
deck walls and rearranging as follows:
You will need to cut away a section of wall aft of cabin
A37 and place it in front of cabin.
the first bay window of the 1st class smoking room.
Forward of this wall you will see a door and three windows.
Cut this wall just in front of the first window ahead
of the door.
measure ahead 21-22mm and cut again. Remove this section
and gently file both ends flat.
make another cut in the bulkhead directly in front cabin
A 37, between the door and the forward wall of the cabin.
This makes A37 a free standing piece. File the ends
of the cut.
take A37 and dry fit it to the bulkhead just forward
of the Smoke Room bay window. You will see that A37's
new position sits over the original gluing track. Mark
with a pencil everywhere A37 lays over the track. Now
remove the track with a file or hobby knife at the pencil
lines. Test fit A37 again. If it sits flush to the deck
glue it into place butted up against the wall in front
of the bay window.
take the piece you cut out from behind A37 and insert
it in front of the relocated cabin. It should fit in
between the the door and the small tab of wall you left
on the A37.
When dry putty the seams, sand and paint the deckhouse
walls white. Trim the windows with brown paint EXCEPT
for the PALM COURT WINDOWS which stay white!
To fix the port side make one cut just ahead of the
portside Bay window and then second cut 21-22mm ahead
of that. Remove this section and gently file both ends
cut the wall a third time at the inside corner were

should now be freestanding. File any cuts you have made

to tackle the bulkhead in front of A 36. There are three
1 and 2 are simple fixes but leave the windows incorrectly
spaced. If you are not bothered by the misaligned door/windows
you can skip this step. The area is seen but blocked
somewhat by the tank room roof supports and sunscreen
if you add that. We did not make this particular change
on ours, only the A36 change. Modeler's choice.
take the piece you removed and place it in front of
A36 to join up with the wall that has the door and 6
windows. It should span the gap perfectly. Glue it into
place and let dry.
about 4mm off of the 21-22mm piece and glue the resulting
17mm section in front of A36. Now cut the 6 window/1
door section off and move it back 4mm to butt up with
the front of the 17mm wall section and place the 4mm
wall panel on the front of the 6 window/1 door section.

the starboard side.
