A problem with bulkhead number 13 which had been incorrectly cut by the manufacturer was corrected by adding a piece of 1X6 mm limewood to make both sides of the bulkhead identical.

I made filler blocks for the bow to give the planks a better surface to sit on.

I have looked at the kit and like the size. Love the full wood pattern so the cannons fit properly. Enjoy the build.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple
