E.J. Mine is just like yours. I didn't understand why there was that little short piece tacked onto the rear end of the fuselage, but that's what showed so I went ahead and made it the same way you did. Now that you mention it, it is obvious what "shoulda" been done.

On the other hand, having that "tail" on the fin post complicates the normal sequence of covering the fuselage and vertical stab and then installing the pieces. If you assemble then cover it might be worth fixing; if you cover then assemble it is a harder choice.

If you do decide to "fix" it, consider just scarfing on an extension to the rear of the fin instead of building a whole new fin.
