Exactly! In the 1:72 Roden this thing is too wide -and too visible- I  
just wonder how that beautifully molded kit, whch dimensionally is  
spot on with EVERY drawing published, has the leading edges and the  
turtledeck changed(combed backwards instead of parted in the middle).  
One of the little mysteries of life, isn't it?
