seams on large ADA aquariums

I have a request - could those of you with larger ADA tanks (e.g. 120-P and 180-P) please post some close-up pics of the seams?

I know that the smaller ADA tanks have practically no inner fillet on the seams (the only silicone is between the pieces of glass). I was thinking of trying to emulate this on the DIY tank that I'm building, but it's going to be a pretty large tank so I wanted to see whether this is the practice on larger ADA tanks.

Yes, the same workmanship is present on the larger tanks.

This is the older version ADA with 10mm glass on the 120 model:

Now they use 12mm and i think also outsourced production.

My 120-P is 2.5 years old and I believe is the 10mm version. The fillet is about 2mm. It's pretty perfect.
