Default Bottom Skin Differences Old and New

Got some more differances I wanted to share on the old fuselage and the new iS Fuselage. Thought it might be interesting for some to see, that are going to build the new iS, or those who have built the old kit and have not seen the new kit. This view is from the bottom. You can see the difference in the position of the access ports and the location.

It appears the inspection panels in the bottom skin for adjusting the stab cables are not present in the iS.

Apparently the turnbuckles are in the tailcone or somewhere easier to access?
