Solid Body VS. Shells showing different results?

Hello,

 

I have set up two simulation static studies. I've keep the mesh, forces, and fixtures the same. After running both studies they are giving me significantly different results. From what I understand this should be a good assembly to use shells on since it has large parts with comparatively thin sections/walls. I don't know which results I should trust and If I have set them both us correctly. Anyone feel like reviewing my work?

 

Thanks

Pat

 

Edit: It won't allow me to attach the model and results. File is too large. I have attached pictures of the mesh and results. May make it difficult to check things so this is more of a theoretical discussion at this point.
