I attached the lower wings today.  Fit was, ummmmm, challenging.
However I beat it into shape any it shouldn't need too much PSR under there.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

Rudder is attached after making good on the attachment face - one fuselage half was 1 mm longer than the other.
I have also fitted one horizontal tail.

You're going Tophe's way?  ;D
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Here is Scale Reference Riot Squad Officer with the works so far.
The Lego character is perfect with your model, showing that this egg-plane cannot be serious, can it?  ;D

Sorry, no.  It now has two.  I find it easiest to fit one side, let the glue dry and then fit the other.  Makes it easier to get them lined up symmetrically.

Started on the engine.  Instructions show it being fitted backwards.

Makes it easier to get them lined up correctly.
The word "correctly" belongs to another world than whif (what-ifers are judged incorrect…). :-\ :unsure:
I would rather say "pleasingly". ;D

I apologise mon ami.  I misspoke.  I have changed my words.
