Right, the GPM kit has separate slats. But the wing structure is much less elaborated than in this kit.
I noted the wire that crosses the fuselage. It seems to be a very good idea, as the wings are so thin!

It is always important to beef up the wing support. here a metal wire does the job beautifully and it goes thru the fuselage like this ( one piece bent in the center fuselage and use Super glue ).

Even though having separate controls is more work, when it comes to flaps, it adds so much.
some planes it makes no difference especially if you never see them in a dirty configuration, or if they are supersonic since the spaces between the controls and the fins/wings are very tight.

In reality, for the F-104 it would have been perfectly natural not to separate anything.

also, for this plane since it flew many times without any external fuel tanks or missiles as well, you can stop there and just admire this jet powered rocket.

That is what makes this hobby fun.

When we meet in June, I will bring the finished plane.

Cool Main landing gear struts

Kit parts call for 3 layers of card wrapped by the exterior skin.

My version has a metal wire bent to shape and sandwiched between two of the card frames. All is cemented using Super glue

then cover all 4 sides

and install in place using super glue again

I'm on vacation this week, so I can spend a bit more time building

Thank you Yaron, but there is more to come on the struts.
