Two simple answers. As stated before they took a kit model of the Eterprise and simply changed the order of the numbers provided.
Yes, we know why they did what they did, but I was trying to look for an explanation within the context of the show. Also, they went to the trouble of coming up with a "CONSTELLATION" decal, so how much harder would it have been to come up with a 2 digit (or even 1 digit) change to the registration?

As to the rear of the nacelles being dark that is easily explained script-wise. They were on impulse, no power in the warp engines so naturally they are powered off and dark.
I never mentioned the rear of the nacelles being dark, it's the total lack of any detail that makes it obvious it was a cheap model.
