Was browsing imgur and I caught sight of a post where someone built a cutaway model of the old Star Trek movies' USS Enterprise.  At first I thought it was some artwork with the first image, but then I saw it's an actual physical model.

Source.

Most likely used something like these general blueprints (which I believe includes deck plans,) to help with the interior.

(I have those prints, somewhere, in the misc this and that of my house.)

Nice . I still have the complete blue prints of the Enterprise ,TOS . Made in the 70's I think. 14 panels about 8" x 30" ( been awhile since I had them out ) .

Impressive. Though it does remind me of a design question...Why would you put your command center/bridge in such and exposed position?

About half the ship is for the warp drive and nacelles (the antenna things). That just leaves the saucer section for lodging, storage, and equipment.

I would imagine the location of the bridge is on a separate level for security reasons. Too many aliens and rogue crew members trying to cause havoc. I think the bridge could be on the top or bottom of the saucer, but its location on the top will probably keep the senior crew (decision makers) the safest during battle as it is furthest away from the warp core.

That isn't the TOS model, the nacelles are round in the original show. It is from the movies but I an not sure which one off hand but it is darn nice work nonetheless.

Easier camera positioning.  Just pop out a wall section.

The engineering hull and stanchion was supposed to house a significant portion of the crew, especially the engineering divisions. At least that's what I remember.  So perhaps the interior scale is off.

Still, that's one hell of a model !!
