Not very good, but you can see that in essence it has a rectangular plan-
form at all levels with verry little side-to-side taper aft of the max cross
section.

I notice that the prototype has nowhere near the swoopy lines that the
artist's drawing did... Reality, that is salability and day-to-day survivability,
rears its ugly head.

Hope this helps.
You can see some boat tailing of the roof structure although the body has less camber.Thanks for the link!
