The body looks great, but I would recommend some filler for the gaps to make it look like one solid piece.
The thrusters an rocket need work IMHO.
Some really good thrusters can be made with those cone air fresheners from the dollar store and some wood sphere shapes. Some Jangos I know of make replacement thrusters this way.
The rocket doesn't look like a rocket to me, sorry. It also doesn't match the references. Wizardofflight has some templates for making the rocket or you can buy a rocket from someone for pretty cheap.

Looks good! Sorry if my comments came off somewhat gruff. I was trying to be helpful, I promise  :laugh:

I like the new rocket and fuel canister toppers.
