Which "skill"? This is my first injection molded kit since years, the last was a 350th Missouri with RC conversion in 2006 i think. In the mean time where card models only.
The main "skill" for the planking you need is time!
The first plank was glued with an ruler taped to the deck for alignment an cured over night.
The following planks where attached with a spacing jig (small .010 strips on a .080x.080 stripe interfering with the deck spacing) and the said ruler to get them straight as possible.
Need aprox. 15 min per plank.
