My understanding is that the physical model is still part of the traveling Star Trek collection that has traveled the world numerous times. I hear that the bottem of the model has the decals for U.S.S. Leeds, the ship seen in the later DS9 credits, while the top still has the Farragut details. It is a shame that despite not initially having the model avalible for scanning into CGI, they never decided to go back and scan the model when it did become avalible.
