What's up with people perpetuating the 120 meter Defiant?

The model was built to a scale of 170. There's a ton of stuff that only works if it's 170.

The only reason to consider it smaller than 170 is if you're trying to vindicate the tech manuals somehow.

And moreso than the other series, I don't think the people who did the tech manuals really had much say on DS9. I might listen to Drex and Okuda and company about TNG, Enterprise, or Voyager. DS9, the creative folks DELIBERATELY rejected tech advice and I think that means the tech folks aren't reliable authorities when it comes to DS9 aside from what they can tell us about the finished product.
