The MG Models kit includes a number of compromises, some can be overcome to a degree but I think that you just have to accept that this isn't going to create a fully accurate rendition and just get on with it..

They also score highly from the speed at which they allow you to get up and running when first trying O9.

I don't know a great amount about the prototype, but your alterations and additions look very neat and 'finish' the model off a little more!
Wish I had the ability to solder kits together...I don't even have an iron available at present!
