Jedes Vorderteil ist genau so breit wie das hintere Mittelteil. Ist das richtig ? In der Abbildung sehen die Vorderteile verschieden breit aus.

Die Vorderteile überlappen sich um einiges, das können Sie auch am Ende selbst variieren, wie stark sich die Vorderteile überlappen. Die Knopfleiste sitzt ja auch auf dem Foto nicht ganz mittig. Die Vorderteile sollen jedenfalls genauso breit sein wie das hintere Mittelstück.
