@Dennis: Impressive work. Hope sheŽll get faint specular details which resemble hull plating instead of the typical aztec pattern.

The Mike Minor painting that reflects the TMP changes was done later, after the changes had been made to the TMP model (not the Phase II model). He also included some red striping on the saucer which may have been intended but was never actually applied to the model.
Well, actually, they were applied to the model at a point before the ship got it's final rework, but after that happened, the decals were left off. You can see them on the model on page 158 of The Art of Star Trek.
For those without a copy at hand:
Also note the TOS-style bridge superstructure and the smooth top of the impulse module.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
