I've been hoping this would pop back up again. Still looking good!

I saw something recently on one of the Facebook modeling groups, one Gene Davis pointed out a subtle detail that hadn't been noticed in the saucer aztec pattern. The four "feet" on the bottom of the saucer aren't a solid color, or part of the regular pattern, but actually have a striped ))) or >>> pattern on them, that looks more softly airbrushed than the sharp panel lines elsewhere (maybe it was supposed to be a Damascus-steel type effect). I've attached the images to the post if the Facebook link doesn't work.

Calling it "Beautiful" does not do it justice.

David cgc,

Thanks for those! It never ceases to amaze me that, even after 40 years, we can still find something new when it comes to this particular starship model.

Well, if we're gonna be super picky, I can contribute more to the Varied Ways to Ensure Lightborne Never Finishes campaign.

I can't remember if this work began from the Bailey reference, but if so there is a mistake in the forward nacelle spotlights. I know this now only because I had spent so much time scrutinizing the TMP drydock shots.

The Bailey mesh has both the inboard and outboard spotlight tubes angled downward:



However, it's clear from the studio rig that the outboard spotlight tube is forward facing:



This correction has the added benefit of removing some of the phantom lighting that we use to illuminate the exterior surfaces. The outboard spotlight is actually the source of the light hitting the rear saucer edge; but if you're working with the Bailey mesh, you need to introduce (at least) two phantom light objects to replicate the effect.

John,

Thanks for asking! I've not been able to keep up on this project at the rate I would like. But I am about halfway done with adding in my little graphic bits to the saucer; and although I can see the end of the tunnel... it's still quite a ways away. I'll do my best to keep on working on it though!
