Huh? They look to be more or less the same size to me...
I just mean rectangles and circles. In a seemingly random pattern.

The smaller size works ok, but the 1080 size works so much better.
To be honest, I think you might actually be right.
By it's nature, making the ship slightly bigger makes it easier to get all the components in there without having to comprimise as much - like having a half-deck at the saucer rim. That seems so...strange to me.

Anyway, as far as the refit goes, I'd make the nacelles round and have a swirling bussard dome on the front of them - ie, make them more TOS-like, and loose the art deco. That's about it.
I'm wondering why so many people would want to retain the cylindrical nacelle and spinning bussard-dome set-up? It made the warp engines look like big giant rocket-engines.
Different tastes. I like the dynamic look of the TOS nacelles. The swirling energy of the bussards looks more powerful and exciting than the static blue grill.

To me anyway.
