I like the forward delta of the pylons, it's a nice touch, the whole shape makes for a low and mean look that is appealing, the nacelles are slightly above the primary hull but perspective view would make that less obvious.
As for the function of the Bussard Ramscoops, it has to be remembered that the scoops contain force field generators that create a massive funnel shape (many times the size of the ship) to channel elemental hydrogen to the collectors, so the collectors themselves don't actually have to be in the physical path of these molecules, that is established in canon, at least according to any "technical manuals" published.
