Well, currently Roll models seems to be the only online source for the old 
Joystick kit, and it costs a healthy USD 20.75 (rarity value?) while the 
Roden kit is USD 12.75... covet your Joystick kits!

I'm not too sure, but I guess there are some subtle differences between a 
"faired over" type 17 fuselage and the latter type 24 design. Perhaps it's 
symmetrical, while the 17 is not? I should check my datafiles FWIW...
