The tail is mounted..... Looks pretty good. See the pics. Plane bigger that you may think. Note size comparison. A note on the tail, it is setup to be tightened with screws and not glued. I found this to be a problem as I could never get the tail tight. The screws were, but the elevator had movement. I ended up using some epoxy.
However, the locking mechanism on the hatch broke... It was on the 2 or 3rd time that it had been installed. Going to replace the latch with Rare Earth Magnets... I have plenty of them and they are cheap.
Wings are next. Going to start them today. Not sure if I will finish or not. Going to save the winglets to be the last thing to install. They appear to be the most fragile part of the model, so I elected to save them to last.
The directions is a decent guide line, but don't follow them precisely... If you do you will not install the flaps or other required items. they missed a lot here.

Size comparision. This is a 40" Parkzone Wild Cat.
