The most notable differences are the large nose cone, black tail fins, position of wing/landing gear leaver and the two small missiles seem to be moved back a little. Also note the purple skystriker emblems. Makes me wonder why it was switched around so much before production. In many ways I think the prototype looks meaner.

That piece in the early photos should be bashed from a Tamiya Model kit, either the orignal hand made model, or a resin copy of it. It goes through a lot of work before it gets to the later photo. A lot of the internal mechanisms and what not would not have been in there yet, and all the removable parts had probably not been engineered, like the tailfins and what not.

Compare the pre-production Skystriker with the new reissued model. They appear identical to me.

One seat, black stabilizers, further rear-set sindwinder missles, and a different wing/wheel slide: what 'deceived' me?
