Fantastic design! I printed this with a Monoprice Select Mini v2 using PLA and PLA+. The parts (where needed) and magnets were glued with Gorilla Clear Grip contact adhesive, which worked very nicely with an overnight dry time. A bit of acetone on a rag to cleanup adhesive and a few sharp corners were all that were needed I noticed that parts printed with support had magnet holes that cleaned out easily and were just the right size. When I didn't use supports (the landing gear, for example), I found the magnet holes were a bit too small and had to be reamed out to get the magnet to go in. Due to the 120 x 120 mm print build area of the Select Mini, I had to print the lower fuselage in two parts (split the model using Windows 10 3D Builder) and glue the parts together, which worked out fine. All other parts printed very nicely on the Select Mini. It occurred to me, after I put the magnets in, that it should be possible to arrange the magnets so that the left and right pieces would not hold to the incorrect side (e.g. horizontal stabilizers), with some careful planning. If I make another one, I'll try it.

I presented it it to my almost-five-year-old granddaughter yesterday, and she loves it. She has disassembled/reassembled a half-dozen times and also spent time teaching her babydoll how to do it. Thank you very much for sharing this design!
