Brigade Models has just posted some design photos of the upcoming upgrade to the full British fleet. Capital ships are already done, escort ships due early next year.

Noooo…I've resisted the Brits thus far. Why Tony, why must you make such shiny things…

On a side note: I wonder what CAD program he uses?

I resisted buying into the line until they released the Spanish, first fleet in the 2nd generation sculpting style. I broke down and bought a grand fleet for them.

Then have been waiting for the rest to get upgraded. They've been teasing it along by doing everybody's capital ships first. So that made it easy to hold off on buying fleet packs that were half and half. Looks like Brits will be my second fleet. I'll try to get the Spanish all painted and flight ready before next April!

Not sure which CAD program they're using, but they use it well, that's for sure. ^,^

I am satisfied with the old models.

Canuckinator – I use a freeware package called Wings3D. It's not the most intuitive interface (in fact it can be downright unfriendly) but it works for me.

@Mo – New Russians and Japanese here (which I received with my Imperial Skies KS pledge). Quite tempted by the Spanish. Do they actually have a Grand Fleet available at present?

@Tony – Thanks for the lead! I've never heard of Wings3D – I'll have to read up on it.

I put in a special request for a Spanish Grand Fleet Pack through Scale Creep, which Tony provided. But it doesn't appear to have become an official product code (yet?). I recently supplemented the Grand Fleet with a Torpedo Flotilla and some Atalaya Patrol Nefs which were the ships not included in the Grande.
