@circusdog - Good question

If you are referring to Indention A then:

The original inspiration comes from the idea of adding plates that would mount flush to the back that would slide around or fold out to "transform" between different configurations.
Yes, understood.

If you are referring to Indention B then they came from visually confirming the "duck tape" in the series footage from the Smithsonian reference shots I had found via google.
This also. Thanks for the Smithsonian pic. The "duck tape" explains why I didn't see an indentation on the restoration pic I found of the impulse drive:

BTW, the two outside holes had screw-eyes in them for suspending the model by wires, edited out in the films.
