Any tips on building the Revell 1/530 angled deck Essex kits ?

I know about the accuracy issues, etc. And there are some resin and 3D printed parts like Islands. But, how do you get the actual hull and deck together? The fit is horrible. Is there an easier way than the kit instructions would have you do it? The issues I have are that the side galleries do not fit into the hull. The contours of the "floor" or "deck" that joins the vertical walls to the hull itself just do not match the hull. Then, all of these parts sit at different heights so the deck does not fit flush. Even sanding the top down really does not fix this very well... A few parts just have huge gaps, too.
