What are you on about? Looking at past X-Wings and Ties, these versions look to have equal amounts of studs compared to those. Unless you just have a problem with studs in general, in which case, mate. It's lego. There's going to be studs. Not everything can be covered in tiles and made absolutely smooth. Though I'm not sure why I'm wasting my time. I've been on the internet long enough to know not to feed the trolls.
