DAN CHERRY'S PROCEDURE

 

Step 1 (correcting the walls).

Part H6 is incorrect and needs to be modified. Cut the part off where J26 is inserted. Put the cut off 'L' shape into place on the deck. Take a straight line from the forward edge of the Cafe Parisien's center doors and mark the 'L' at this point. Make a cut here. Glue the remnants of the 'L' to the deck. (This needs to be in place as it forms a support for the decks above).

Cut a strip of of sheet plastic to make the wall that ran from the forward edge of the Cafe Parisien's center doors to the port side hull.

Step 2 (painting the floor).

I painted the flooring dark red and then over drybrushed with a tan.

Step 3 (furniture).

If you want to fully furnish the room look at the plans in either the 'Last Days of Titanic' or the Wels 'Legacy' book.

See the PRIVATE PROMENADE section (Step 3) for the construction of chairs and round tables. See PALM COURT section (Step 7) for a simple way to make the square tables. For more historical accuracy you could attempt to glue pulled sprue legs to the corners of a piece of square sheet plastic.

Only put a few chairs closest to the windows as no detail will be seen beyond this point.
