Mine seemed to line up OK, although there was quite a gap between wing and fuse when all locked down, filled all that in with balsa sheets.
Seems like everybody has had bad flap hinge point alignment issues....also not happy about the minimal alu flange contact connecting the flaps together....mine only extend about 3 mm into the next flap slit....this maybe enough in practice though and doesn't seem to be an issue for others so far.....but could be better designed by protruding further out.

Wow !!! How did you reheat the glue ?? with a torch or soldering iron ..or ??
And " Cut it out " ....you mean with a sharp razor saw right around the metal flange ?
Good job....I may have to rework mine now !!
