He we go another build this kit is a David Schwirian and for a fiber glass kit is is perfect.
I will have to work out the lighting but that should not be that hard and I do want to add people inside the windows the same as Steve Neil did on his.

Been following your huge Star Destroyer which is incredible!

You should check out this build by Lou Dalmasso. He just started a 66" TOS and it's looking fantastic!

Starting on the domes for the nacelles the plastic has a line vac formed in to it as a cutting line another testament to the quality of this kit.

The resin casting the domes sit in are recessed so the dome sits in nicely, and of cause it is a perfect press fit.

Should the domes be diffused or clear?

I really like the idea of pressure-fit domes! I'd leave them unglued for easy access.

If we're replicating the filming model, clear domes, sprayed with this
As that's how it's current iteration in the smithsonian was done.

I've heard (unconfirmed as far as I know) rumors that the original domes were clear, sanded for a frosted effect, and sprayed with something like this
(I seem to recall Pelikan brand but can't find any at the moment)
