Received the pics, thanks Scott Turns out I actually already had a few of them on my hard drive from my last attempt (however long ago) to Google some decent pics, lol.
I’ve managed to tweak a few of the details to be closer to accurate in terms of size and placement, but now I have a question regarding the lineage of some of the surface details.
For example, I noticed sitting just behind the navigational beacons and RCS thrusters there are sets of two raised rectangular panels, as seen below:
I can’t be sure whether some of the details I’m seeing were present on the original filming miniature back during WOK or if they were perhaps added for later refits to represent different vessels in TNG and later.
I find it hard to believe that there isn’t someone out there who didn’t take a more detailed series of close-ups when this model was on display at the Christies auction. If I’d been there, I would’ve documented the bejeezus out of them all, lol.
Google brings up maybe three or four (same as the ones I now have from Scott) good close-up shots.
