We haven't talked more about this site. I bring attention to some pics Drexler has of the DS9 kitbashes.

Seems like the the third nacelle was meant to go on top.

I think that's only because it was easier to take photos of it while being balanced on two nacelles instead of just one :-)

Really, there's no name or reg, so it could be either orientation. When Drexler originally sent me the side view, it was two nacelles up, one nacelle down. That works for me.

I'm just patiently waiting for the Enterprise-J orthos he'll be posting after March 15.

Yeah he describes the E-J as being huge. Too big for turbolifts, instead relying on sight to sight transporters.

Well, regarding the Hutzel, isn´t that a bridgedome? If so, the third is absolutely on top.

There's a bridge dome on the other side too, so that's hardly conclusive. Not that it matters, these are only distant background fillers, not actual designed ships.

The Starfleet arrowheads on the pylons are upside down with one nacelle down, but rightside up with two. Also, the motion control mount, which is usually on the bottom where it won't be seen, is on the two-nacelled side. These two points indicate to me that it was intended to be arranged with two on the bottom and one on the top, as Drexler drew it in the DS9TM and as shown in these new pictures.

Looks like John Eaves has joined the bandwagon and started his own blog too:
http://johneaves.wordpress.com/

BTW, if you didn't know how to get the large pics from both Eaves' and Drexler's blogs, just remove the width and height tags from the end of the URL. For example, this post has this picture:
http://johneaves.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/argo-car1.jpg?w=665&h=420
Remove the stuff after the ".jpg", and you get the big pic:

Wow... someone watched SW: Episode 2 before doing those Vulcan architecture drawings.

According to Drexler in this comment, he'd never seen any of the prequels. John Eaves' comment on the same question doesn't specifically say that, but it's implied that he hadn't seen it either.

I was talking about Eaves drawings. They look strikingly like Padme's apartment building.

Eaves posted some concept designs for the NX-01. One of them looks like a precursor to the STIX Enterprise.

Ahh! The underside of the Enterprise-J! FINALLY!!

And it's pretty much a mirror of the top. Ah well, we also get an aft view, so I'm sure the fandom can figure out the five-view from there. You really get a sense of the ship's size though. It would easily dwarf a Galaxy-class starship. Funky nacelle struts too.

It looks like it's in the same size class as one of the REALLY big starbases or the Voth cityship. Perhaps a multi generational trans-galactic explorer?
