The domelike blob at the center aft of the secondary hull appears to be a cast of the studio model Reliant's lower planetary sensor (the thing directly opposite of the bridge on the ventral side).
You can see the four "branches" leading off the dome.
Looks like they drilled a big honkin' hole in it to mount the model.

I wonder where the square-segmented garbage in the deflector comes from.

Yes, the sensor dome is from the AMT Reliant model kit.

Here's a link to the Propworx auction:

https://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/74753_propworx-live-star-trek-auction-vi/

Of note: Two great pics of the Buran, and several pics of Jein's G'roth Klingon battlecruiser model used in DS9's "Trials and Tribble-ations."

Well, now we really know what Buran's tail looks like.

There's a lot of neat shit here. I'm poor.

So I've been right all this time: they DID use two upper halves of the 1/2500 Galaxy for the tail. Actually, I'm half-right, because I thought they used 4 of them to make a gentle tapered section. Although...it looks like the connecting section to the saucer might be a hacked-up part of that lower half piece, & then they rammed the uppers up its ass. (I have no more model kits to play with & test my thesis.) Also look like the lower pylon is just a simple piece of thick sheet styrene.

Too bad we can't go back & find our who buys these models so we can ask tjen for better, more detailed images.

Actually I think it's just the part of the nacelle where the pylon would usually attach to:

No kidding. I'd LOVE to have a huge pic collection of these models from all angles.

Hopefully we'll see more photos of these things once they get included in private collections.

It has occurred to me that I know what this "unknown" piece is: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/38846762_star-trek-shuttle-pod-landing-bay-miniature

It is the aft-most landing bay door and deck of the USS Bozeman, Soyuz class, definitely screen-used. First time I've ever seen this thing so clearly. The deck doubles as the impulse engine, since the Reliant's original engine was covered by the aft-mounted superstructure. I wonder where the rest of it is...Probably destroyed. Don't know why they said it was "unknown", Okuda or Hutzel would have recognized that piece in 2 seconds.

Looks like it only had one bidder and sold for $100. If I had noticed this sooner, I probably would have tried to snag it for myself! Sigh...missed opportunities... [Frown]

Not from the auction site, but possibly taken in preparation for one: really good detail pics of the Olympic-class.

Thanks for the pics. I had seen them before. They were actually taken before the model was relabeled as the Pasteur for "All Good Things..." Pretty sure the pics were taken by Bill George himself.

Anyone see the Centaur magazine that came with the Eaglemoss starships collection? It looks like it has some angles of the original filming model that hadn't been previously seen.

I made two scans from someone's Youtube video. Yep, they are new shots of the model: a bottom view from Drexler's original photos, and several great views of the model from other angles. Incidentally, both the photos and the text make it clear that Buckner meant for the ship to be smaller than a Miranda, and yet Eaglemoss made their model Excelsior-sized.

Here are some pics of the model I built for comparison:

I could only use the model parts I had access to (other parts came from random airplane/tank/etc. kits), but I recreated the ship as best I could.
