The official size of the ship from the production team was originally supposed to be 1200 meters. All the space shot effects were shot to that scale, while the ground shots were shot at a smaller scale. They decided on 760something meters which does not jibe with the size of the bridge nor the size of the hanger deck. Both of which clearly show the 1200 meter size scale.
Besides Kirk should always have a bigger meaner ship than Captain Tea sipper

I'd slim those engines. Also, I don't buy that 1,200 meter length. Hell, what would explain that huge of a size increase?
Also, lose the tail fins.
