Agree with you all, but the ones on the kit look squarish. On your pics they are more rounded.


My eyes maybe.

Pretty sure it's just a fairing missing between the intake and splitter plate - the real plane has a slight sort of F-106/Viggen-type sweep where the intake lip meets the splitter plate, while the kit has an L-39-like hard crease.  Annoying, but a little filler and some careful filing and it should look much better.


IMO, less of an issue than the drop tanks, since they're harder to correct yourself.
