This photo shows the general differences in the Hawk, Collect-Aire, Battle Axe, and Tamiya 1/48th Scale Thunderjet kit fuselage (unmodified) parts.

Compare Fuselage of Fourt Kits

Notice the differences in tails, ventral fins, panel lines, wing roots (especially Tamiya which has the cutout for the flaps), the too-long nose on Battle Axe, the missing fillet on the fuselage aft of the canopy on Battle Axe and Hawk, and the tailpipe (correct on Tamiya).
