    I'm not sure if I like it. It's not terrible, but I'm really not digging the non-straight pylons. The over-under nacelles are kinda cool, but I suppose that Star Fleet would design new, bigger engines rather than doubling up classic Connie nacelles?

    Just my two cents. The actual modelling looks pretty great.

    @Albertese - Agreed. It was more of a thought exercise to see if it was workable. I think in the context of TOS is that they already have straight pylons so there really needs to be a good reason to make them non-straight. The bigger engines I just slapped together to play with the idea and if I did more with the model I would build out a new design. :)

    Speaking of those bigger engines, I just noticed how similar they are to the Atlas class nacelles. The main difference is that I filled the gap between the top and bottom nacelles with Excelsior-style grilles. Small world :)

    That's one of the few four nacelle ships I like.

    Great job.
