Arado Ar 234
The Arado Ar 234 Blitz (English: lightning) was the world's first operational jet-powered bomber, built by the German Arado company in the closing stages of World War II.
Produced in limited numbers, it was used almost entirely in the reconnaissance role, but in its few uses as a bomber, it proved to be nearly impossible to intercept. It was the last Luftwaffe aircraft to fly over Britain during the war, in April 1945.

5. Front fuselage.
It's relatively straight forward. I added pictures to show the cutting line (red lines).
The front fuselage may is a little challenge for the dome-shaped front end. You can also check out the construction photo at another example (Boeing B-29 Superfortress).
The adjusting weight is included and it flys great!
