i know what you are saying in regards to the resin side pieces not even close to fitting but by raising your bulkheads at the waist you throw off the lines of the ship and will only encounter more problems down the road. i have come to the conclusion that the ship in the pictures on the box and on the web were build around the resin pieces not vice versa. also if you check out some of the smaller resin chunks you will notice that they are too big for this ship. i suspect that they are a mixture of the 1:50 and the 1:30 scales. i have decided not to use any of the resin globs and just make a wooden ship model with some trim work detailed cannons and deck furniture. it will be renamed the h.m.s. louise after the wife. good luck with your build. the lights are a nice touch, especially at the stern.
