Personally I think it looks quite charming, and very cool story on the origin of the name. I'm assuming the front dome is a Cage-era bridge module. The rear dome looks like a later bridge design but without a turbo shaft extension on the back. Is that a secondary bridge or just an elevated nav sensor dome?
Exactly - just a hi-resolution sensor emplacement. In other words, I was too lazy to seal off the hole on the model.

I like it too...Might I suggest though eliminating the 'waist" where the embedded secondary get's pinched and taking off the bridge dome at the rear?
Again, the physical model determined that shape when I puttied the cylindrical 2ndary hull into the saucer. That's just the way it came out, and even though I'd envisioned a straight hull line, I figured it was good enough for government work .
