Already a critical moment in the build, that's unfortunate....

The engine exhaust is by far more detailed than the KK one, for the engine cone as well as for the exhaust duct. GPM's version is much better!

Cheers,
Erik

@ eatcrow2 - thanks
@ Erik - I hope that the fuselage skin and landing gear compartment will help se define what is right and what is wrong, with no consequences...

The cockpit has not as much detail as in the average Halinski kit but it is well done. The pilot’s seat is a good example.

As you see, I assembled the front fuselage skin before mating it to the cockpit. The fit is just fine.​

Thanks for the comments, friends

The tail has a heavy fuselage card structure that, in my view, was not really needed. I added the card triangle to the fin. Already visible are the airbrakes and tail hook compartments.

You're doing a magnificent job.

I hope that you added weight to the front end (assuming that you're building a gear down version).

Very clean build, as usual, Ricardo. Be careful with the wing spars, they look very fragile and can be easily damaged while handling the model. Gary has a good point but the wings and central landing gear are positioned such that it shouldn't be a problem without a weight added to the front end. Unless the internal structure at the tail side is too heavy....
