150CC Pitts s12

Hey Guy.
Started work ( well an hour ago) on a new model.
This time its a Pitts S12.

I have sketched most the parts, but for some reason, something looks off?.
This is off a 3 VIEW.

Can anyone point out what looks wrong?

No Cabanes and the landing gear legs are too short!
Is that really an S12? The cowl looks like it is from a Model 12.

though the legs look a little short... The cabins and inter-plains will be added later. during the design.

vs Scale:

Fuse is longer/thinner
Wing chord wider
Horizontal and vertical stabs chord wider
Canopy comes down lower than scale

I'm not aware of an S-12 ... I know it as an M-12

Back to drawing board. The 3 view I had was way out when I compaired. No matter only a bit of time wasted at the point . I thought it looked a little strange.
Thanks dmichael!
