HMS steam tug Nimble class

Hello,
I need some help please.
I would like to make a 1/48 model of this fine tug
I have recently purchase a set of plans from NMM.
Can anyone suggest how were the decks? Metal sheeting or covered in wood?
Thanks
George

Thank you for this info. It somehow confirm my thoughts. Will be great if I can find a picture showing wood deck.
I know the tugs were initially fitted with open bridges, wheelhouse was fitted later. Maybe fore decks were wooden only in early service.
Regards

Does the plan not show wood sheathing? Usually it would.

Unfortunately no. And I don't have sections, just side and upper views. I also have plans for Brigand class. The wooden deck doesn't appears on this plans also. But here I'm having sections and the planks are drawn on sections for Brigand.
