I don't suppose anyone is going to be snarky concerning Godzilla?

Naw. But the ship probably carries Kaiju Class shuttles.

Thanks to everyone for welcoming me here and for the help / ideas for the registry numbers.

I am making a rubber mold for the neck piece. That way, I can offer the conversion piece for sale to anyone who may be interested.

I have also drawn all the art for this ship and printed it. I decided on the USS OTTAWA NCC-1971.

I will provide photos soon.

JBOT asked me to snap a picture of the part in the mold. Here it is! Along with a couple of parts for other things.

those numbers would make more sense if you drop the 1 from the front.
970-980 is perfectly acceptable for TOS-era scouts and destroyers.
5-digit numbers are strictly for TNG ships

Here are some update photos. I have to get cracking, I guess; there are only 2 weeks left!
The neck piece attached above the primary hull is a resin copy of the master I built:

I am also attaching two photos of my MASAO conversion. I am using the same neck piece, but this time attached under the primary hull:
