X-1 Advanced TIE HELP

Alright RPF I need your help. So as I make progress on my SS TIE Fighter (slowly) I've decided to build a X-1 TIE fighter as well. I'm stuck on a few parts that I can't seem to figure out. So I'm asking the great minds of the Studio Scale section to help me identify the parts that have me stumped. I'm posting four pictures with the parts I can't find highlighted and numbered. #16 looks like it's the wood slats off of a stake bed but I could be very wrong. Thanks for any help.

Sadly the 312B exhaust has too big a diameter to be the correct part. Ended up fabricating from electrical wire as per previous posts.

I'll check with Andy. He's doing the build right now 100 miles from me, which means I can't check potential donor parts for size directly against the subject.

When we do the TIE (I bought Koolshade!) we'll take a different approach. The Niesen X-1 is proving to be a bit more tricky than originally thought. I'll be doing a thread on it in a while.

Update:

Andy has checked and the other options from the 312B exhausts won't work either. Curvature is not a match, and the pipe diameter is too great when compared to the reference material.

Yeah I think it's actually 2 parts but the one does look like a transmission/driveline. I've looked through a ton of different vehicles in different scales and just can't seem to find it. I'm pretty sure the round piece at the end is a Bandai Panther G fire extinguisher, if that helps with scale.
