It's funny, I never noticed before just how many lights were missing from the other side of the 11-footer. Even the lights around the saucer rim are missing, which you'd think they would have put in at some point with all the front and rear angles we saw of the ship.
And yeah, it is a travesty what they did with that paint job. I don't know WHAT the reasoning could be for doing such a thing. Even if they wanted to put in some gridlines, there's no reason for them to be that thick and dark.
