Exactly which HB version are you working on?

Howdy gang!
Work is progressing nicely on my Brandenburg FB CAD model.
However, I am struggling with an area of the hull/fuselage. My reference drawings have conflicting views of the decking behind the cockpit. This is the area of the hull between the port and starboard lower wings and directly under the engine.

I think it ought to be a rounded cowling shape. However, I can understand why it would be a flat platform. (That would make engine maintanance easier.)
Does anyone have pictures of this area other than what was published in Windsock? Failing that I am interested in opinions and educated guesses.
