As far as the movie productions were concerned, they really were the same model. With these distinctions:
K't'inga (in The Motion Picture) sported the red collector up top the engineering hull. Unlit nacelles.
Kronos One sported the inner, green illumination of the nacelles. It
sport the red collector
upon initial approach of the Enterprise
during the threat of combat and Enterprise's surrender. It's hull displays a unique, red paint job across the armor plating. The House of Makok (of which, in soft canon, Chancellor's Gorkon & Azetbur were a part) emblem on the nacelle struts. Along with a unique name implying flagship status at that time.
Then we saw K't'inga again via CGI in both DS9 and Voyager. Most showings displayed the lit nacelles.
What we see in-game is a single K't'inga model sporting combined lighting schemes. IMO, that's not a horrible thing. I was hopeful the lighting schemes would be resolved later via the Material customizations. Just like deflectors are now. Maybe some player don't want the lighting scheme at all. While others want all of the above.
