This may be due to the fact that the US produced minis from GeoHex 
necessarily always have exactly the same smaller detail parts as the
versions we currently sell over here in the UK (in some cases you get
bits, in some less, in others just different!).

The reason for this is that GeoHex began their licensed production back
when the original ships were made by CMD  rather than GZG (we still used
be the UK seller of them, but CMD actually made them). A few years ago,
took them over from CMD when its proprietor retired through ill health,
in doing so as we had to remake almost all the moulds we took the
opportunity to revise some of the models slightly. Most of the US-made
versions are still following the original CMD designs, whereas of course
did the fleet book1 from our current production items.
