Internal of the nacelles is a cage of rings braced together and mounted to a pair of telescoping brass tubes which will mate to the inner tubes embedded within the pylon. Magnets at this connect (between the tubes) will lock the nacelle flush to the pylon end.

The back of the frame will sandwich a cut piece of sheet brass in order to keep her true to the correct angle as well as insurance against a joint solder failure.

Not just a slick TOS design, but a slick engineering project as well! What's your day job again? Cuz this is impressive product design...
