3. The Regent Pylons are swept forward.
Therefore, switching hulls but not pylons brings the nacelles farther forward. You get the same result if you try to combine some skins and hulls as well on other ships.
BUT, if you use the backswept pylons with the short hulls, there's no problem. The split hull has nothing to do with the positioning of the pylons.
Oh I see.
Yes it is to do with the long tail of the Regent. Again a design oversight that prevents the forward swept pylons and nacelles integrating with the other ship parts nicely.
Another thing I noticed around the ugly and small deflector is some weird tri-shape going on. Its quite subtle and pointless.
