In case anyone has a spare 1/600 Revell Enterprise laying around and wants to modify it into a testbed for the TMP era upgrades, I'm currently working on resin print mod parts for that. After all, the kit comes with USS Potemkin variant decals that are perfect for that.

In case anyone's not aware, the Revell kit is less accurate than the AMT/Round2 kit (modeled gridlines, some aspects are even based on the cartoon Enterprise), but due to its low price and still relatively large scale it's a perfect base for kitbash projects.

Those are really cool. Makes me wish I had a Revell Enterprise!

Pretty sure I've worked out what most of your updated components are... except for the long narrow tapered cylinder and the ridged arrays, both at bottom right of your picture. Torpedo tube? (Although there's a recognisable refit-style torpedo launcher top right. Side/bottom additions for the hull, like the details at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock around the refit defector dish? Are the ridged components additional nacelle details. perhaps?

Thanks!
That Revell kit is dirt cheap. At times, you can get it on eBay for less than 30 bucks, for example Revell Star Trek Uss Enterprise NCC-1701 (TOS) 1:600 Space Model Kit - 04991 4009803049915 | eBay

The ridged parts are visible warp coils (carving out the "greeble pits" on the nacelles was annoying). and the tube above it is a secondary deflector, like those around the TMP Enterprise's main dish (the detail also found on the Miranda where the saucer transitions into that wedge).
This look at the STL export folder will probably shed some light on it:

Really nice of you....there was some AMT bits for Orne Montgomery's USS Charger concept, but his infinity reach site is gone


Orne Montgomery had a 1/350 of his own
Modeler's Miniatures & Magic
Rebellion Creations

I think someone of the same name passed away in Nevada recently--and sadly it looks like Modeler Magic is shutting down to an archive...
Thanks!
It's always nice to get additional inspiration.

Right now, I'm waiting for a fine-toothed contour gauge to arrive to handle the area for the impulse engine exhaust. Adapting that compound curve has proven to be a real pain in the ass.
