This my very first try to make a wooden ship
my very first big mistake I have made is that I have slided the wooden strips for the false cannons through beams soaked, becouse I believed it was easier to bend them and pass them through. Next day the whole structure was twisted several degrees closkwise.
Since the damage was done, and that time I wasn familiar neither had the guts to start all over from scratch (since I have the draws I could easily made new beams), I have decided to fill bath with water and let all structure to get soaked well, and sieze it with clamps and let it dry, with the hope that will be turned back to its original position.
The success was up to 90-05%, I wasnt sure If I could make the second try to look better, so I kept it.
Iam not sure if the kit had some flaws, or it was result from the twisting, I had to made some adjustment for teh poop deck
