Finished and almost ready for moulding, we have:

Patrol cruiser, heavy cruiser and big carrier.


Escort carrier (CH-sized carrier for 2 fighter groups)

2 new fighter types, looking VERY SLIGHTLY like X and Y wings.....  ;-)
Strike Corvette (a biggish strikeboat, probably FTL capable)

Plus another new DD, which at present doesn't have a home - but maybe

To follow: another few IF and UNSC, lots more Japs, FCT and also

Availability on all these is provisional on them surviving the master

Thanks for the Islamic suggestions, especially the class names. I have
say I'm personally not keen on the asymmetric designs, especially as the
models are symmetrical, but interesting nonetheless!
