Ray, where are you getting this? The length of the Tichy USRA twin is NOT the issue, and if you've got proof otherwise, I'd be happy to see your work.. The following side-by-side illustrates the issue with the Tichy model:

The center two panels of the model are wider than prototype. Granted, it's not noticeable unless you look for it, but once you know it's there, it's like an itch you can't scratch.
