Hello Ovleg! I've updated all three of the Megalodon designs based on the Gottfried model.
Interestingly, I found that on the proposed skeletal that seems to inspire most of the reconstructions; the appearance of "bulk" is largely due to Gottfried under-estimating the posterior body length; placing his reconstruction over my own coincidentally results in the pectoral fins, maximum body girth, mouth size and distance from pectorals-to-jaws is almost identical- by adding a pointier nose, and stretching the posterior to match the length, the two designs have similar proportions, but with a major key difference- the "tapering" from the thickest part of the body to the tips is far less rapid (due to a thicker head due to thicker jaws), and far more 'curved', meaning from what I can see, Megalodon would be proportionately heavier and bulkier for its size than any other shark, based on this factor.
