The window to the upper left of the roundel is the intake, and small circular window to its immediate right is the exhaust for a pair of gas turbines that feeds the active boundary layer control system and the air-cushion landing system.

I did compare your design to the images of the model of the North American WS-300A design on the Secret Projects Forum. It looked very similar, aside from the TSR-2 style cockpit.
