All of the ds9 kitbashes seem to have really unrealistic paintjobs. whats with all of the blue and bronze parts? The paint job is really badly done aswell,
According to this comment on Doug Drexler's blog, the exaggerated paint was to help the ships "read" as tiny blobs on screen, rather like theatrical makeup. Essentially, they were playing to the back of the house.
