It's interesting that FJ made use of a much larger shuttlebay than Jefferies:

FJ did little more than transpose the Jefferies drawing of the forced perspective set, so he got off on the wrong foot right from the get-go (not a slam; it's a relatively recent deduction that the drawing was of the miniature set and not a straight cross section of the full-size section of the ship).
Well, we don't really know whether FJ realized the Jefferies drawing was of the forced perspctive set or not, I suspect that he did, but in any case, something like what he (FJ) drew would be necessary to come even close to matching what we see on screen. Especially when we consider the relationship of the turntable elevator to the alcoves on the sides of the bay, and then this inturn with the available space below for said elevator to lower into (remember, it has to clear that fantail).
