Profile vs 3D Fuselage on Gyro Models

Just wonder why there are a lot of profile designs vs few "3D" fuselage
designs as on full scale golden age autogyros. Do profile designs fly much better ?

Oops, I guess I should have asked this in the beginner sticky.

Simple Answer for my AC20 ...... Far easier to build and when flying does not detract too much , fun vs effort..

I think it has a lot to do with how long you wish to take on the construction, and can you tell the difference when the model is flying. I cant say if one fly's better than the other and so I believe they both have there place.
Happy Landings
