The full-size mockup of the Galileo shuttlecraft had a slight decrease in width from back to front for the same reasons.
Your source for that assertion? Everything I've studied about the Galileo has never indicated that.
I might be able to answer that... Galileo actually gets a bit wider as you move towards the back. About a 6 inch difference.
That's already widely known as the mock-up was built with a measure of forced perspective to the design to make the 22ft. exterior look bigger than it really is from certain angles. But it's also integral to the design as it's mimicked on the filming miniature. But on neither is there any indication that the nacelles (or the access hatch) had any taper to them.
