That's probably why its so damaged. Or perhaps it was damaged while making Generations. But i remember hearing that a replica was created for that final scene where the Enterprise-D plows into the ground.
I think they refurbed the original TNG 6ft model that was originally built for TNG in Generations, because it had far better surface detailing than the smaller 4ft model employed on TNG after season 3 (or maybe 4, my memory is a little off) but I can't recall if they used the 6ft model saucer or a brand new saucer only model for the crash sequence.

Fascinating - I find the opposite with the Ent-B.

The alterations to the basic Excelsior design really ruin the clean lines and simple elegance of the underlying shape and finish.

It's like my very own Ryan Church Enterprise to TOS Enterprise!
