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.
Sorry, my signature costs $80, fanboys.
