OK, sorry!  I made a mistake very common in the modeling world. I took it as 
given that everybody wants to build as accurate and realistic models as 
possible, ie has AMS symptoms of some level. Ugly airplane? I do not agree! 
It's the Bf thingies that are ugly not the Be ones!

I've got the same problem with my BE2c kit. I'm going to try this:
