In my humble opinion it is nothing more than a reflection.

I agree. I thought I saw the same thing before, but this is a higher-resolution bitmap than I was looking at. I think it's pretty clear that there were intake wedges in front of the engine.

I have found a new problem. The wing incidence on the a/c appears to be close to zero although it is shown as 1 degree in the NACA model in an earlier post. In Anigrand's model it is about 6 degrees. It would appear that the wing trailing edge is in the right place and the wing leading edge is too high. This would explain why you thought that the top edge of the nacelle needed modification.
The more you look the more you find...I'm not happy about the rear end of the nacelles and the way they fair into the fuselage

Here is an outline of the original design over the blueprint (which is kind of faint):

Feh:

Is there any chance of getting a higher resolution copy of this please?
