The carrier that Tony is refering to is made by Adventurous Spirit.  It 
is part of a range I'm working on right at this very moment. Sorry Tony 
about those annoying little bubbles on the surface, I had to rush the 
moulds for SAGA and didn't have time to use a Vac chamber (I have to 
travel 80 km to use it) The next releases will be better with the 
engines and bridge made out of metal and hopefully no tiny bubbles. I'm 
just putting the finnishing touches on a super dreadnaught that looks a 
bit like the Earth ships in The Fifth Element. The OU ships you are 
referring to are similar in shape, although not made by me the two 
ranges will compliment each other nicely.
