I had the EXACT same issue. Being a little OCD
, it drove me crazy, until I finished the VS. Now, I don't even notice and no one else (other builders or tech counselor) has noticed.
Accept it's not perfect and move on. I did better grinding edge off of Horizontal stab unit (with same warning about ribs) and no dents.
Too bad we can't build an entire plane "just for practice".
The 2nd time doing anything is always easier.
