Hey Cosmotiger, what is the part number and manufacturer of that decal set? Do you have a direct web link to it?

It is a Modular Models decal set. I ordered it from Starship Modeler:

Just an update, I ordered the clear and the purple because I couldn't decide. They were out of blue, the color I really wanted. Which would be more accurate for a 1701 refit and which would look best on a 1701-A?

The inboard grills on the Refit in ST:TMP glow purple. The Ent-A in "Undiscovered Country" has a blue glow effect in some scenes, I think. Those are the only examples I'm really sure of without going back at looking at the movies. My personal preference is for a blue effect.

Personally I always liked the look of the purple glow:

I'm kind of partial to the purple glow myself. Maybe I will use that for the refit, and the clear with blue paint for the Enterprise-A.
