Perfect use of an F1 car for that compound curve, kremin!
the engine block also looks to be taking shape
are those sewing spindles for the engines?

And the rest of that F1 can be kit bashed into a new X-Wing model!

The engines are from 1/43 truck wheels and docking ports from a space station

I'm not totally happy with the bridge section I'll try and modify it or scrap it and start again

I think I see your problem with the bridge.

If you look at the studio model again (from side on), you’ll see that the wings follow the curve of the hull and don’t sit up high like that. If you change them to sit lower then the bridge height can also be brought down to match.
