Enclosed the picture of the structure.
Not sure what to do with part 10. In the description it is connected with an ?. So I do not miss this part so far. Any suggestions to the use of part 10?
-----
Next the bottom part of the hull. Part 17 not found in the description. - Any ideas?

I must say you are really making this model square and true. This will really help you down the line, just remember, to keep it that way, whatever you do on one side, do on the other!! :)

Part 10 is not necesary, I did not use it. But it is suppose to go to the front fuselage (see instruction for fuselage, there is 10(?) description in front of the upper fuselage)

Part F17 goes where I have the hole in bottom fuselage

I did top part of hull like on this photo:

Your best yet. Fix the corner on the front right side of the Pilot's view, front of cockpit, to tuck it in a bit, should be an easy fix. ;)

@ zathros - I think I know what you mean:

thx for the tip - will do so.
I started with the next parts - and noticed too late that maybe part 11 might be better than part 10. I thought that it might be possible to wrap part 11 at the end of the process, but
it does not work.
So I will do the next one using part 11 and then check which way I will do all 4 engines.
Pictures to follow.

Thx bigpetr.
I did E11 on E10 - when dry - formed to the desired ring form. Rest as described in the instruction.
See picture for comparison - one with E11 and one without.
Will do all with E-11.

Forgot to mention: to avoid white edges I painted all parts before putting together.
