Two of my Destroyer designs for Vanguard Miniatures are as good as ready.

Do you guys have any final feedback before I'm shipping them off for printing?

I like it; it's got good lines and good silhouettes. Think only thing that sticks out is the vertical narrowing in the middle. The same point is marked horizontally (visible in plan view) but doesn't narrow so drastically and thus doesn't weaken the silhouette. Any way to produce a similar effect in the side view? I know it's a 40k thing so it could be intentionally so, but it's a pet peeve of mine, so feedback it gets :P

The idea behind this ship is that its weaponry is hidden inside the hull/prow of the ship. It's only visible because the ship's hatches are opened. I guess the model could also be used as a Defence Monitor.

A few things that still need to be done:
(1) Tweaking some of the details
(2) Making an enclosed prow variant (where you don't see any weapons protruding)
(3) Make two bits to enclose the top part of the hull, to make it seem as if the turrets are hiding down below in the hull.
