Star Trek Attack Wing Fleets

As I said at Christmas I caught the Star Trek attack wing bug, I think I am truly on my way to catching up.
Star Trek attack wing collection.
 Now I suddenly realize seeing this picture that my collection is quite small compared to the overall amount of ships available.  The center piece of my fleets is the magnificent DS9, very under-gunned and perhaps like the Borg was Nerf-ed.  My Borg fleet started with a tactical cube which I happily purchased for its going price not the stupid price some people on E(vil)bay is asking for.  Most of my fleets are the normal named ships except for two of them, the keen eyed people amongst you will notice, Boks Marauder and the Klingon B'Moth. Both OP prize ships, both got at reasonable prices.

With DS9 I will have to get the Dominion. I will get Voyager but not the Kazon of Species 8472, I will also not be getting the Vulcan's just yet  My newbie bad purchase of the alternative universe has me at somewhat at a dilema as to whether to use them in the main game or keep those as a seperate universe full stop, we shall wait and see.
Live Long and Play Lots

Star Wars X-wing Fleets

Below are my Star Wars X-Wing Fleets. First off all my fleets are only going to include the ships from the first three Original films, thats right Star Wars - A New Hope, Star Wars - Empire Strikes Back, and Star wars - Return of the Jedi.

Why only these films?, easy answer 'caus the others suck.
That is my opinion and that's that.

Back on track. The Rebel (Scum) fleet consists of the rebel aces pack giving me an A-wing and an B-wing.  CR90 corvette, and the Rebel transport along with its X-wing escorts. We also have Han Solos' ship the Millennium Falcon along with 3 Y-Wing (flying tanks), and finally the obligatory X-wings, I had three of these but one met with an accident as in the repair shop, close to being scrapped :( . The observant of you will notice besides the Ace pack B-Wing I do not have any others, this is because I cant get them at the moment, I only want 3 of the buggers and the suppliers are always out of stock...Gr
The Rebel Scum fleet.
 The Imperial Fleet, the pride of the galaxy, unlike that Rebel scum (you can tell which fleet I root for can't you) consists of my Tie fighter swarm, all 6 of them. 3 Tie Interceptors, 2 Ace Tie Interceptors, 2 Tie Bombers, the Lambda Shuttle and Darth Vader's advance Tie fighter.
Only one advance tie I hear you cry, well I can only see one in the films, I am slowly rechecking though.  Now as to Slave 1 I do want one but again like the B-wings my supplier is having difficulty getting me one, and before you shout E(Vil)Bay at me, I am not paying those prices, thieving sod s that they are.

Imperial fleet.

Now obviously my decision limits me to what I can get for my fleets, but then again I am a child of the 70's Where Sci-Films did not need CGI, Now model ships with CGI would work.
Tatooine for now
