The verticals look like they could be sourced from a smaller scale Constellation kit.

That twin tail T-33 is screaming to be built!

Unfortunately, the cheapest, in stock, non-ebay Constellation is $20... steep for just the fins.

For more details, check out https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/lockheed-l-181-fighter-p-80d-p-80e.22855/

The L-181-2 (P-80D) was basically a single-seat T-33 with a P-80 canopy. Obviously, the L-181-1 (P-80E) also needs swept wings. I wonder if modifyinf Me 262 wings for a slightly greater sweep angle would work?

It looks more like the rear end of an F-94C with a F-80 front end. 

I've got a T2V Seastar prototype conversion build going (slowly), I've used the bits from a F-94B rear keeping the canopy but raised the rear of the cockpit. then added the nose of an F-80.
