Guys, I've been building off and on for thirty years. I've built every skill level more than once, but I'm having a very hard time right now with my ACME SPITFIRE! I cannot get the half in, half out thing with the CR no matter what I do. I am trying to assemble the first section, and I can't seem to hold the tube in place, align the second ring and push it in half way all at once. I've been working on it for 30 minutes! I took a pencil and rubbed it along the inside of the tube along the cut to flare it out a bit where the cutting had pushed it in, and I sanded the CR a bit to make it less tight, but I still can't align everything and get that CR just HALF way in. It either goes all the way in, or the one side goes in and the other stays out, or I push the first section tube out of place! ARRGGGHH!
