They could add material to the plug's intake to make it rounded, but then they have to make a new mold. I have had a couple sniper 70's and a couple 90's and I have alwyas rounded them and re-painted. Would be nice if it came that way, I agree.

If they just rounded the outside it would be pretty easy to do and would at least look a little better, but would only create half of the radius and require some modification to the intakes to get the inside radius.

On a plane I molded, I had to make a separate piece to be glued on to the fuse, because I could not get the fuse out of the mold. BVM does it where they have the intake rounded and attached to the fuse in the mold, but the wings are plug in. With a bolt on wing, it because hard because the wing saddle makes it so you have to pull the fuse straight up out of the mold and the front of the intake gets caught.
