You can fix that. I have repaired much worse.
The undercarriages are usually held on badly and pull back during a bad landing. This rips the woodwork out making the damage much worse.
2 months ago my friend broke what looks like exactly the same model.
The fuselage was much worse than that.
I repaired it all and inserted 2 10mm x 12mm fibreglass rails from the nose back and screwed the undercarriage to those. Now the load is taken over a wide area as the rails were 10 inches long.
He has really bounced it and even landed into a ploughed field, the u/c stayed on.
The cg was slightly rearward and moving it forwards by just a small amount made landings much easier.
