You make a good point here. Perhaps the comparison worth making is not to a photo of the aft secondary hull of a 1701 model, but rather to a photo of the aft secondary hull of a 1701 refit model.

...I think it's more debatable than some of you guys do... it really really looks like the back of the 1701(r)... in form and in size... more than it does like any nacelle detail I've ever seen (including the one seen here). But as I've said... we'll all know soon enough, won't we?
Though I think it's a nacelle, the lack of any radiating screen on the intercoolers makes them look like... well, to quote somebody, wings.
I gotta say, I agree with you on this one. It looks like a nacelle to me.
Can anybody whip one up in Illustrator?
Hmm, who here could do that? :looks around:
And, genius moment, IF it's a nacelle, with those dudes on there working, we should be able to deduce a more accurate idea of scale, yes? Assuming of course that these nacelles are as tall as they are wide, and assuming that those dudes aren't Oompa Loompas.
