I'm curious though, I can't seem to find any images of either CLACs or SDs? I'm wondering if those have been deliberately excluded for some reason?

Oh, one other thing... I was looking at the pinnace... is that a cargo bay in the back, or is that the engineering space?

cargo in in the middle, engineering is in back.

Just a battleship and a star of Grayson at Thingiverse.

There are still some of the big 1905 fleet boxes of Minis available at Amazon:

I once bought the Honor of the Queen mini set - while pewter, the BC is so small, you could whittle it from a pencil. The CA and DD in the kit were, of course, even smaller.

I haven't done the CLACs or SDs yet. We are currently going through a bit of a dry spell for releasing (or creating) new images due to reworking some of the detail bits and adding new markings. Once all of that is "finalized", I will redo all the current ship images with the new stuff, and finally get around to the heavier metal.

A list of new details (more or less complete - roughly 85-100%) is, from memory: redesigned radar, EW, LIDAR, and telemetry panels, redesigned weapons port hatches, new missile tubes and magazines (for old style ships, such as the Fearless CA - haven't started on what new tube and magazines might look like for modern ships) and redesigned escape pod tube covers.

Started but nowhere near complete (maybe 10-20%): New RCS thrusters, new grav sensor arrays, new "conning towers", new PDLC housings, new CM tube housings, and new radiators.

We've also worked out a way for weapons ports to be marked - yellow/black warning striping around the hatches, numbering and naming what's behind each port. Forex: LASER 01, MISSILE 15, GRASER 04. Most of that is done for the Fearless, since she's our test bed for anything going on/into any of the other ships.

The problem is that all of us working on the ships are extremely busy with real-life stuff, and our schedules don't coincide very often.

Yep, fits in perfectly with canon.
Does that mean that the Weapon That Must Not Be Named is coming back to deal with the MAligN Spider-ships?

I can't write anywhere near as well as Weber
But I try nonetheless, And even do my own artwork.
