This isn´t that new in fact, but for the ones that have their childhood in 70´s, like me, these are cool news.
The Draconia and Seacher kits were released by Larson Designs:

http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=43194

Some time ago I tryed (two times) to build the Searcher in 3dsmax, but the bad screencaps available and missing information about her entire hull, made me to abort. Looks like I have enough reference for now... I´m thinking to give her a new try. :) But the Draconia.... to build a model of that ship is far away from my current skills. :bonk:

Anyway... Since I´m here, let me share with you the "new" references that are online:

I love the older scifi ships. Have you ever seen the Stewart Cowley books? I love them, I was lucky enough to run across a couple at a yard sale and got them cheap. They're worth over 50 bucks each but I won't be selling. I really wish I could find Spacewrecks. It is the only one I have never read.

The TTA timeframe... Surelly I know those books, and I have them too. Stewart Cowley is also known as Steven Caldwell, his books are between my prefered from 70´s and 80´s.

About Spacewreck, isn´t that hard to find it to sell by a cheap price. Talking about books like that, take a look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terran_Trade_Authority

Also... do you know this one: Image

I've seen spacewrecks come up for sale a couple of times on ebay but it always outpaces what I'm willing to pay. Thanks for the wiki page. I didn't know the newer books were also Cowley's.

I've never seen that before but I'm downloading the file to check it out. Thank you.
