Yes the rudder position is different for the RC version, according to Sergio (the designer of this model) he says this was the best position for the RC rudders being supplied as in performance on the water etc.
Nice looking hull, yeah your rudders are slightly different both in appearance and position, but I would hardly say there is that much external difference between the two and what lies below the surface you wont see anyway
An awful lot of people will have pre-ordered the Hachette RC pack, take it you are not laughing directly at them for doing so ???
It seems that you take every possible opportunity in just about every web forum to do down the Hachette RC pack which might suggest you have an ulterior motive :-\
I don't think anyone expected to receive a top of the range RC setup such as yours, don't get me wrong what you have done to date looks the bis, but am sure if they wish to go that route then they will easily find you
Each to there own and it is down to personal choice so lets leave it at that as its starting to sound like a broken record and we have already been down this route previously
One question I do have for you, the actual ship has eyebrows on the Hull above the Bow & Stern Portholes, it seems from your photo that Amati have not included this detail on the model, is that correct or would you know if this detail is to be done by the builder, or if Amati are to provide something to give this detail?
My view is that these should be on the model as it is a detail of the model being accurate is it not?
