Look at the side window opening. It like a chopped top.
I have a feeling having grown up around this car, it makes it a bit easier to spot an issue right away.
That's what I mean. The side window is lower, making a thicker header rail.
Leaving it up to you to see if this is closer to reality, because as you say, you've been exposed to these cars. Just a crude photoshop to bring the top of the window to meet the windshield line, as it does in the 1:1 picture. I won't argue the front being too angled, as it's obvious even to me.
EDIT: This is a second attempt, as looking at the 1:1 on this page, the windscreen wasn't wide enough either, leaving a thick a-pillar. Actually I think that's it. Rather than being too low a roofline, the pillar work is so off that whereas the 1:1 has a narrow A-pillar and the door meets close to the pillar line, this model's window line is further back from the door shutline and then with the thick header rail as well, it throws off the proportions all together. If I were Neo, I'd rework the whole glass area, as front and side it's way off.
The header rail looks right as it's just the light colour that makes it look thicker. If you look at the edge of the roof you can see the thickness is the same as the real car. If you could get a picture of the real car with the same colour roof it'll look the same. I agree with Jeff that it looks chopped.
