Great job all around here!!!
As for the issue about simply plugging the pylons into the secondary hull.....
I have no problem with that. That's how you attach the nacelles on the kit models. Prototype imitating art imitating prototype, you might say. It's been a while since I had one of those, but I remember that one nacelle on my model would sag a bit. Couldn't fix it then, but it'd be a snap now.
I'm looking forward to seeing more from you folks.
And I'm in no way a structural expert (and don't play one on TV ), but it would seem there should be a deeper connection in there.

I can't remember which of our wonderful 3D artists did it, but one of them had the internal aspects modeled and the pylons basically ran into each other in a "V" connection.

Still, like I said, a very minor thing.

“Well, It’d be the 19th century for me, one of Napoleon’s marshals.
The chance to march across Europe with the greatest general of all time and kill Belgians” - (White Hole).
