I seem to be having some problems with the chimney, I’ve followed the instructions but it appears to be somewhat oval and there are gaps between each bolt! Does anyone have any simple tips or tricks to help me?!Chimney kit E999f710

Your brass top is too low. It should be flush at the top. There will be a bit of a gap by the nature of the flat join, which is normal. Usually not seen from above as on the full size its 10ft at least up in the air.

You may need to pop a brass rivet through the edge at two places round the bottom just to hold it in place.
