Keep in mind that the hangar deck "miniature" had to be built in scale with the shuttlecraft miniature, which itself was at least a foot long. According to Richard Datin's website, the hangar deck model was a whopping ten feet long and six feet wide--many of us puny pink-skins could comfortably lie down width-wise inside that monster!
I believe these are the droids you're looking for.

"WARNING FIRE"? What, are those where they keep the coal furnaces?

Fire Extinguishers?

Fire Water?

Re: Photo request -- Enterprise hangar deck studio miniature

Well, people just plain didn't pay attention when the sign only said "Warning: this door leads directly to hard vacuum". "Fire" was deemed to be a more efficient deterrent, especially after the installation of flamethrowers connected to the handle.

Where should we think the set door lies, in relation to this model? By conventional wisdom, it doesn't seem as if it could fit between the outer hull and the sides of the hangar... But note that the door is at an angle to the corridor leading to it, much like the doors marked "ELEVATORS" are on the sides of the hangar model. Perhaps we could squint just right and pretend that this indeed is the forwardmost of the "ELEVATORS" doors? (Peering through it, one should be able to see the shuttle, as indeed happens on occasion.)

And since you can't see the hangar bay clamshell doors behind the shuttlecraft, the only logical explanation would seem to be that this set of double doors is indeed on the starboard side of the hangar deck (assuming that the shuttle is pointing towards the clamshell doors).

Can't that shot show the shuttle after the hangar deck elevator has lowered it to a storage or maintenance facility?

Or the grey wall could be some sort of opaque force-field that they put up because the clamdoors weren't sealed closed yet...

So many fanon possibilities...

But see, that's the argument I'm trying to make... there just isn't enough vertical room for a storage space that tall.

Look at this photo from "The Immunity Syndrome". The Galileo prop was over seven feet tall, and we can just barely see something at the top of the frame that might be the roof, but that's twice the height of the shuttle overhead. Sure, I suppose you could have a 14-foot roof in the under-hangar maintenance bay, but why would you? Volumetric space is at a premium--there's no need to have a under-deck maintenance/storage bay that's much taller than the shuttle itself.

Unless you wanted to store some other LARGER craft like a cargo shuttle.

The very same. I wonder what the acoustics on the hangar deck would have been like?
