F2AAC is WAY out, which means the natural curve of the front end is lost as well as F2C and F3C also possibly being out (maybe). Check the dip at F2AAC.

Here is the fuselage with the cowl on, the cowl seems to follow the natural lines of the fuselage.

And the cowl at the bottom of F2C is acceptable to match up with F2C (it's flexible and hanging right now, that's why it's not against the bottom all the way)

Too resolve this issue is not too difficult, it's just dam time consuming
There are two ways I could tackle it:
1: I could tack blue foam between the side and bottom former's, shape and the remove to get the correct cross sections of the former's
2: Strip 3mm balsa, lay the strips up from F1 to F3 then measure to the inside at all the former's and plot them out on paper, cut them out and sand and fit until they are correct
Either way is time consuming but in the end has to be done
Here's F10 with the stab supports glued in place. F10 only had a very slight deviation which sanded out very easily from both sides.

Well, I guess it's back to the building board to sort out this CR@P, till later okes
