I've started planking the inner walls of the bulkheads and realised that my bulkheads are just a tad off Blushing . Unfortunately not able to put a pic of it up.
I knew that a couple of the bulkheads are a little out but it became more obvious when doing the inner walls.

I was hoping that someone who has already planked the outside can assist me. If possible would you be able to measure the inner gap and the outer gap between the top of frames 11 - 17 i.e. across the desk. Prob making a hash of explaining. I think frame 12 and 16 needs to be pushed out somehow as the inner walls are really curving in.

Will try and get some pics done this week.
I've attached a pic to show the frames I am referring to.

If anyone can help it would be really appreciated.

Hi Darrenallen,

The Frames are quite out on these. I got the outside of the frames right first then I filed the inside of the frames so they where all the same Approx 5mm. Mine where quite wobbly, here is a pic of looking down on top of mine.
