Default RE: !/4 scale WWI kits?

BUSA has a formula and it's clearly popular:

1. Wings that don't require functional rigging
2. Longer nose and/or tail moments for easy of flying
3. Deep cowls to avoid recessed firewalls
4. Shorter undercarriage for easier take-offs and landings

I can appreciate this and see why the majority of casual modelers would want these changes. And I suppose once you stray from the original on these points, it doesn't much matter whether you end up deviating in other small ways from scale.

Different strokes for different folks.
