Looking at it, I wonder if building up the dorsal fuselage so that the rear of the cockpit has between 50% & 100% more fuselage depth below it & a shorter, less symetrical radome would work?

Possibly the existing radome would work, cut at the base, so it angles down, & then cut slightly forward of that, so the angle is at about 45o to the bottom of the fuselage & faced in sheet styrene?

I'm trying to be more like B Da B and show the finished product instead of endless in progress shots.  So here is my finished Spice Transporter from the clear your bench GB:

What yellow did you use for the stripes? It looks nice and solid.

I used Rustoleom "gloss Tuscan sun" I try to keep yellow to the more orange spectrum as opposed to the very yellow. I think it looks better personally.

The darker color is dark gray primer. I wanted to avoid black in order to get some scale effect
