gaps between panels

I stitched together my chesapeake 17 and have small gaps between the bottom panels and side panels where they meet at the stern. I think this happened because I didn't align the scarf joints perfectly. Should I unstitch them and sand them down for a better fit, or just fill the gaps with epoxy? Thanks.

RE: gaps between panels

Sand or plane them to fit better. Any filled gaps will always be visible unless you paint the boat instead of varnishing. -Wes
