Found this today:

Not much new here, but at least the models are shown up close. Of particular interest is the Xhosa, which I don't think we've seen up close before.

The Excelsior looks like shit.

So does the Constellation; it's being sodomized by a giant pole.

Are these the actual filming models?

The Vorcha, Excelsior, and Constellation are filming models, but the TOS Enterprise is a replica.

These few models (as well as the Nebula class and a few more shuttles) seem to be the only ones they haven't sold off.

Great reference pics! Thanks!
Check out the extra two phasers on the Valkerie's dorsal side:

Great pics of the Constellation, I´m getting a little bored seeing only the standard models like the Vor'cha and the Galaxy.

I noticed in an obscure photo the model of the Jem Hadar battleship, how come there are no good pics of that model for instance? Or the Vidiian? What with the Christie's auction and all...

Whoa - I never noticed that before!

Actually, looking at this picture, it looks like there are *five* extra phaser nodes around the perimeter.

Those's are the same models and set pieces I saw at an exhibition in Bournemouth something like ten years ago. No wonder they're starting to fall apart, must have been around the world a dozen times by now.

No kidding- that ship would be a battleship in Kirk's era....probably a match for an Excelsior even.
Two impulse plants, four nacelles, bunch o' phasers and four torpedo tubes (if the model can be trusted).

Makes me wonder how many would be in service circa the Dominion War.

Looks like the new phasers are located at the saucer's single-person elevator airlocks.

Makes you wonder how Picard struggled against the then-unknown Ferengi ship.

I think they sucker-punched them during opening hails.
Possibly the Ferengi's alien (and previously unencountered) power systems did not register as a weapons buildup.
Or it was a TWOK moment where the Ferengi weapons powered up faster than the Stargazer's shields.

Didn't the Cardassians do the same thing to him? Jean-Luc is a trusting old soul...

As for the armaments; remember that even though the Stargazer had to be abandoned, it was still able to destroy the Ferengi ship in the time it took them to realise they were shooting at a sensor ghost, presumably with it's shields already up.
