Well spotted Beowulf.

Others are shown below:

This photo shows that the front part of the engine cover fits very snugly with the bodywork at the sidepods - see the area marked A, but everywhere else - areas B and C - there are gaps that I would not expect from Tamiya.

Maybe these were made as a Toy / Model so to have people remove the top. if it was too tight it could cause problems. I dont thing these detract from the model tbh but a bit a extra plasticard butted up to engine cover and the sanded flush might to the trick?

Rods used a bit of masking tape over his gap but I somehow dont think that will work here...

A final comment if anyone wants to have a go at this model is that the positioning of the exhaust pipes is fairly critical. There is a little bit of wriggle room in mounting the exhausts that could leave you with some interference between the exhaust outlet and the engine cover. If I were to try this model again, I'd leave mounting the exhausts until the final stages when I could position the outlet to ensure that there is no interference.
