Thank you all for your feedback and sorry for the  late reply.

I’ve been at the 41st celebration of my Highschool exam (41st because of the Covid-restrictions last year) in my hometown in northern Germany. 
I will continue with the build next week.

Today I managed to paint and assemble the engines. Only painting of the compressor wheel and inner parts of the turbines necessary. 
I used AK Extreme Metal, Alclad II and Tamiya Weatherine Sets to achieve the results.

This is how the original looks like:

And my interpretation:

Exhaust tubes:
Impossible to remove these ejector-pinmarks. 
Luckily not visible when assembled.

Next step now will be the assembly of the fuselage mid-section.

Looks great to me the exhausts

 

Just a small heads up on the light set

I have taken a good look on my set and iff i see it right the landing lights and taxi light are on at the same time.

So far what i can tell is its taxi light on landing light off ore the otherway.

Thats what i found in my references 

 

Keep up the great work

Hi Mark

Doesn't sound right that both the taxi and landing lights would be on at the same time or both off.
