On December 5, 2017, Amarillo Design Bureau completed its seventh wave of ships (79 in all, for over 400 available ships) in its store on Shapeways.

The Federation gets the strike cruiser and fleet tug with one pod. They also get two fighters: the F-8 "Crusader" and the F-16 "Falcon." Especially exciting is the release of the third of the Franz Joseph ships, the Federation transport/tug with one pod. This is the official Franz Joseph design offered by ADB, Inc. under its contract with Franz Joseph Designs. (We plan to release all five of the Franz Joseph Federation ships over time. There will be more tugs with no pods, two pods, and various pods.)

A new line of "Fed Classic" ships was started in response to requests for smooth saucers. This line now has the heavy cruiser, galactic survey cruiser, guided weapons destroyer, scout, strike carrier, and fleet tug.

The Klingons aren't neglected. They get their D6B heavy cruiser and the aztecked D6K refitted heavy cruiser.

The Romulans add the Scout Eagle, Freight Eagle, SparrowHawk-A light cruiser, and SparrowHawk-C scout cruiser. By request, the 3788 Scale Vulture dreadnought was added. They also got four fighters: Gladiator II/III assault fighter, Gladiator III-K assault fighter, Gladiator-D superiority fighter, and Gladiator-F superiority fighter.

If you want to decorate your game room with hanging ships, then you have a choice of the Federation heavy cruiser, Romulan War Eagle, or Klingon D7. There's even a decorative display stand that should show them off in all their glory.

Showing up for the first time are the Juggernauts which were built in another galaxy and sent to check us out. The heavy cruiser and missile dreadnought should prove a challenge for the Milky Way residents.

The Tholians add their web caster heavy cruiser, heavy dreadnought, disruptor-armed patrol corvette, and war cruiser scout. For those who use the pinwheel battle formation, there is a stand topper so you can add your police cutter and variants to it. There is also a one-piece police cutter pinwheel with standard police cutters.

The Kzintis get their drone frigate, scout destroyer, and FFK frigate with its C-9 refit.

The Lyrans and their wayward county of the Lyran Democratic Republic get their Puma transport tug with two Klingon pods.

The Seltorians add their heavy destroyer.

The WYNs add an auxiliary scout.

The Frax get the second of their submarine ships, a destroyer, to startle young Klingon ensigns when it fires while cloaked.

Empires from the Omega Octant continue to have new additions. The Brass frigate is the latest addition to Probr fleet. The Drex get their battlefrigate. The Trobrin get their Sapphire frigate scout. The Maesron add a bombardment cruiser. A dreadnought joins the Koligahr fleet.

The jumbo auxiliary cruiser shows up to protect systems from raiders and pirates.

I ordered my first ships of this line and should have them tomorrow. Looking forward to comparing them to my older Starline 2200-2400 ships

And then getting them in a game.
