Potemkin_Prod - End caps will probably remain as is but I'm curious about the retractable bulbs, which ship had those? Is that something from the new movie? My eyes may have been overcome by the lens flares lol
The original series Enterprise. I'm one of the crazy camp that believes that the spheres on the end caps came out when in warp and retracted when in impulse behind the vents. I don't believe there's any thrust there (as confirmed by TMP's Enterprise with the fluted wing tips on the warp drive ends). Your model's beautiful, but makes it look like there's 60's batmobile-esque exhaust nozzles back there.
