I have put together a revised Fleet Book 1, specifically the ESU, with more modern SSDs. I have been evolving a nicer look to SSDs for my convention games, and wanted to use some old ESU ships but didn't like the old style SSDs all that much.

While I was updating them, I thought that maybe some other people might like to have them all in one place, so I put together a quick, no-frills fleet book. I have no plans to do any of the other fleet book 1 factions (I don't have their miniatures, and frequently used them as a reference for the SSD outlines).

Since I can't attach files here, see this discussion at Star Ranger, where you can get it:

I sincerely much prefer the "classic" FT ESU ships than the newer ones…

Loooong time ago I asked Jon if it would be posible to order some old stile ships , and he said that perhaps it would be , but that the old molds were not in the best condition…

I know someone made the old NAC ships in shapeways , it would be great if the ols WESU ones were also modeles and sold along those others .

Natxoman, if you come over to the Full Thrust Facebook group, occasionally the old sculpt ships come up for sale as used ships.

Isn't that an NSL ship on the cover?

Yes. I am in the process of working on a better cover. At the time, I just reused the old fleet book 1 cover, but several people have encouraged me to come up with something better.

When I do, I'll put up a revised fleet book.

No worries, just asking. Those old school NSL ships were my favourite models.

I put up a V1.2 of the fleet book, main difference is a different cover to help set it apart from the original fleet book cover, yet resemble it.
