I know I am very late to the party, but I spoke with another builder from Germany about the kit. He only had one gap issue, but he said it was very small and hidden by the roof cover forward of the mast. The bottom and top otherwise fit very well.
On another note, I love the level of detail you have in the cockpit, seems a shame to have weathered it so much, after it looked prestine all painted up. You did a very nice job picking out the details, did you use a dry brush to achieve the look?
PS. From the pictures I have seen, the pilot is supposed to be looking out the window/door, either watching the men fast roping, or looking at where he needs to maneuver the bird, so that the men can deploy the ropes and express.
PSS. The build truly is looking gorgeous, it's a shame about the gap. I don't understand it, this is the first time I have seen that. Maybe I am thinking of a different kit. These kits are far superior in detail than the older MRC/Academy offerings. I have three of those, and will spend weeks just putting rivets on them.
