Walkways and elevators

Walkways are styrene strips gluded together.I have not put the mesh in them at this time.I was unable to find u-channel in the size I needed.I will add stairs and hose reels later.In studying the photos for the walkway. I found mistakes in the ship and repaired them. Elevators are 1/8"masonite as is the deck.The support beams are plastic. Photos of other builds were a big help. Safty nets are on and the deck is painted.The last photo shows nets and blast door. I will have painting on my next submition!
