Grumman F-11 "Tiger" 1:33

Hello.
Welcome to the next report from test gluing. This time it will not be a biplane from the period of the First World War, but we move in time to the period shortly after the Second World War when the era of jet aircraft began. The theme of this thread will be Grumman F-11 Tiger in 1:33 scale.
You can read more about this airplane here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_F-11_Tiger

At the beginning, several renderings of the model in 3D, several sample sheets and the first pictures from model gluing.

Have a nice time watching.

Best regards.

My recommendation is to convert the nose section from petal design to conical sections. It would look much better.

It appears to be lacking the area-rule fuselage. Is this the case...?

I really like this design Krysztof. I could see your design getting a lot better each time you release a model, I will be watching this one with great interest

Hello!
Vinalssergio155: thank you.
Isaac: good idea! I will make two versions to choose from: with petals and conical sections. Thank you for the idea.
deltapike: I hope that the render with the view from above will explain everything.
chicharrero, Richschindler, Lex: thank you very much. I try to make my projects as good as possible. I hope that this time it will also be like this.

BTW: the model is tested by a colleague Andrzej Ciepłuch.

Next photos: frames of the rear part of the fuselage.

Best regards.
