A few months ago, I was kind of upset that the 1/350 Polar Lights NX didnt have some sort of very light aztecing pattern inscribed into the model to make things easier. Someone said that this would not be possible as the plates were seamless. Well, I was watching Enterprise last night, the one where Malcom gets wounded when the spike from a mine goes right through his leg. Since they were on the hull, you could see the Aztec paneling. There WERE seams. It was kind of like the cracks between blocks in a sidewalk, to give you an idea of how big they were. So they would have been small, but they definately could have been inscribed on the model.
