Just as a taster, here is my UCM starter set en route to a warzone:

Cool, looking fresh and ready to kick Scourge!

Kinda reminds of original Battlestar Galactica colors.

I know what you mean, although that wasn’t a conscious inspiration. I just wanted a “classic” spaceship look - clean and utilitarian, but still bold enough to have visual impact.

Perhaps the little 150 piece jigsaw of BSG’s Rag-Tag Fleet that I had as a child made a bigger impact than I thought!

I’ve been getting on with my UCM, including these destroyers. My custom Vancouver is entirely inspired by a similar conversion by Gauntlet (which you can see on his Showcase thread), the difference is that I used spare light cruiser wings instead of Seattle wings.

In fact, I can now share with you my fully completed (for now at least!) UCM fleet 😀

In the vanguard (left of picture), you can see the Assault Wing, whose job is to get Colonial boots on the ground, led by the heavy cruiser Warspite (Moscow-class).
At the top of the picture is the Battle Wing, with all the pure ship-killers, commanded by the lethal Avalon-class battlecruiser Conqueror. Bottom right is the Carrier Wing, concerned with both offensive and defensive operations with small voidcraft. This group is run by the Furious, a retrofitted command ship based on the Atlantis.
Last (but not least), the Command and Control section, comprised of the Lima-class frigates Vulture and Vulcan, and the flagship of Task Force Albion: the mighty Beijing-class battleship Majestic.

All told, 42 ships including 13 capital ships:

Briljant work! Love that you created it by wings. Cool
