As you can see the fit of the engine covers varies and, as I said, I think it is reliant on the precise fitting of the front nacelles.

The cover over the guns is bad and you need to ensure that there is something underneath it to get it level while the actual size of it is not the greatest which results in gaps.

The flat bit on the rudder is over sized as you can see in the image below. The rivets on the rudder are also oversized.

The front of the nose wheel opening on the nose cone needs to be extended forward to allow the nose wheel cover to fit properly.
