This is a Wood Deck for a 1/225 USS Oregon kit as manufactured by Glencoe or ITC. The Glencoe USS Oregon is a mediocre quality kit of an absolutely fantastic modeling subject.At 1/225 scale, the model can be quite impressive when finished - particularly when "dressed up" with appropriate aftermarket accessories, such as Photo Etch details and this amazing wood deck. 1/225 gave us quite a bit of room to work in incredible detail, including perimeter nibbing and planks that are MUCH closer to true scale than the crudely molded in lines on the deck. PLUS, this deck is cut slightly oversized to cover up the poor fit of the plastic deck into the hull that this kit is known for. The end result is a beautiful planked deck with a fine detail that could not be achieved via any other product or method.
This deck features our unique individually tinted plank coloring system for maximum realism! Decks are precision measured and cut to 1/100 of an inch accuracy, and all of our decks are custom tested on actual plastic kits. Our decks are incredibly thin - less than 1/100 of an inch - or not much thicker than a heavy coat of paint. This allows you to glue them right on top of the plastic deck provided in the kit. Since the wood decks are backed with fleece to provide strength across the grain, this allows you to use your choice of adhesives.Burn in a plank pattern using the laser onto a grainy piece of wood, as we have found this to result in an unnatural appearance with heavy, chocolaty-brown lines on the deck. Instead, we actually print with inks on a nearly grain-free piece of wood from an aspen tree, and simulate individual plank tint variations.
This is detail that simply cannot be achieved with a normal laser-cutting manufacturing process, and the resulting detail is unmatched anywhere else in the industry. This deck can bring your model to an amazing level of realism. Our genuine Laser Cut Wood Decks are manufactured FOR scale modelers BY scale modelers.
