Updates at the top. The rest is so you don't have to hunt down the earlier post.

STARLINE MASTER STATUS REPORT: 9 December 2013
This lists only ships which are in the production pipeline. Any ship not listed here is a possible idea for future production. Your suggestions are welcome but we cannot delivery every new ship next week. Even a high priority ship can take at least three months from origination to release.
Progress since 2 Dec: Tholian DN and TK5 ordered to prototype.
================================
SHIPS ENTERING OR IN PRODUCTION
=
2500 GENERIC Free/Prime Trader and Armed Transport/Cutter. (missing Book One ship): on cart.
=
2425 SHUTTLES: The existing 2400 (ADB) and 2500 (Mongoose) shuttles will both remain in production.
=
================================
PRODUCTION MOLDS ORDERED: Expect production to begin in two or three weeks.
=
2500 Kzinti Dreadnought in metal, ordered 28 November 2013.
=
2500 Romulan King Eagle revision, ordered 2 December 2013. (The old one-piece version is just not workable. All existing inventory has been melted down and new three-piece King Eagles will be available in a few weeks.)
=
================================
MASTERS BEING REVIEWED: Expect about two weeks before production molds can be ordered.
=
2500 THOLIAN CA (missing Book One ship): CGI, prototype, master all done by Mongoose pre-contract change. Problem is that some phasers on the CGI disappeared on the prototype. On 27 Nov, we asked Bruce to send masters to Tony Thomas so he could add the phasers and do the clean-up. 8 Dec, Tony reports that the masters were received and will be easy to fix and send back to Bruce.
=
2500 THOLIAN DD (missing Book One ship): CGI, prototype, master all done by Mongoose pre-contract change. Problem is that some phasers on the CGI disappeared on the prototype. On 27 Nov, we asked Bruce to send masters to Tony Thomas so he could add the phasers and do the clean-up. 8 Dec, Tony reports that the masters were received and will be difficult to fix and it will be a week or two before these can be sent back to Bruce.
=
2500 THOLIAN PC (missing Book One ship): CGI, prototype, master all done by Mongoose pre-contract change. Master requires the standard clean and fill work which Bruce Graw can do. On 27 Nov, we asked Bruce to send masters to Tony Thomas so he could add the phasers and do the clean-up. 8 Dec, Tony reports that the masters were received and will be easy to fix and send back to Bruce.
=
================================
SHIPS SENT TO MASTER MOLDS
None as of this report.
================================
PROTOTYPES OF NEW SHIPS UNDER REVIEW
None as of this report.
================================
PROTOTYPES OF NEW SHIPS ORDERED: Expect two to four weeks for delivery.
=
2500 KLINGON B10 Battleship: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. 30 Nov 2013 confirmed that the last set of corrections was made and ordered prototypes to be made. NEW SHIP ORDER #2
=
2500 KZINTI NCA: the one in production is missing two phasers and therefore defective. Reported to Mongoose several times. 30 Nov 2013 issued CORRECTED SHIP ORDER #101 to fix this. Possible update: 2 Dec 2013 we asked Tony Thomas to take a shot at fixing the phasers.
=
2500 THOLIAN DN: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. medium priority. Tracked down the latest reports on 7 Dec 2013; the ship had been posted for comment in March 2012. Asked staff for final clearance. Approved 8 Dec to move to prototype.
=
2500 THOLIAN TK5: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. medium priority. Tracked down the latest reports on 7 Dec 2013; the ship had been posted for comment in March 2012. Asked staff for final clearance. Approved 8 Dec to move to prototype.
=
================================
PRODUCTION NOTES
=
2500 STANDS We are looking into both of the types of stands that Mongoose used (straight and ball-and-socket) and are also investigating other options. Asked Matthew (again) for information on his two sources on 4 Dec and he kindly sent quotes on both types.
================================
EXISTING RESIN SHIPS DISCONTINUED; SCHEDULED FOR LATER CONVERSION TO METAL
=
Klingon C8 Dreadnought: Status pending.
=
Romulan Condor dreadnought: status pending
=
================================
NEW CGIs IN PROCESS
=
2400 KLINGON HF5 heavy war destroyer: CGI ordered from Seattle Shipyard 14 Nov 2013. This will be a CGI ship done with high detail and will be produced in both scales. The design will be close to the 2500.
=
2400 FEDERATION new fancy ship #1: Mongoose told to start CGI work on 26 November 2013
=
2400 KLINGON new fancy ship #1: Mongoose told to start CGI work on 26 November 2013

2400 ROMULAN SabreHawk heavy war destroyer: CGI ordered from Seattle Shipyard 14 Nov 2013. This will be a CGI ship done with high detail and will be produced in both scales. The design will be close to the 2500.
=
2425 JUMBO FREIGHTER (three pod): CGI ordered from Seattle Shipyard 16 Nov 2013. It will be produced for the 2425 series and used for both scales. On 5 Dec we saw a work in progress drawing and OK

Jean's post hit another curly apostrophe and stopped. Here's the missing part.
====
2425 JUMBO FREIGHTER (three pod): CGI ordered from Seattle Shipyard 16 Nov 2013. It will be produced for the 2425 series and used for both scales. On 5 Dec we saw a work in progress drawing and OK'ed it, more progress photos on 9 Dec.
=
2500 BATTLE STATION WITH AUGMENTS (missing Book One unit): CGI and prototype were done by Mongoose pre-contract change, but the resulting resin mini is not workable and was discarded. The CGI will be rescaled to match the other 2425s and produced as the augmented battle station as part of the relaunch.
=
2500 GENERIC Heavy Freighter (four pod) (missing Book One ship): CGI and prototype were done by Mongoose pre-contract change, but were destroyed in a failed attempt to make a master. (The engine struts were defective anyway.) This must be re-CGIed to fix the engines, the re-prototyped to replace the destroyed prototype.
=
2500 KLINGON D17: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. The problem is that the FX/RX phasers don't work and cannot be made to work, so we're going to set this aside and someday use the really nice design for a totally different ship.
=
2500 KLINGON D7C: CGI done by Mongoose in Feb 2013 and posted to BBS. Matthew reminded me of this "lost" ship on 3 Dec 2013. The staff reminded me that the wing ridges had been rejected, and I notified Matthew to save the design for some other use and assigned Will McC to come up with another concept.
=
2500 KLINGON HF5 heavy war destroyer: see 2400 listing.
=
2500 LYRAN Dreadnought: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. Wanted for the relaunch.
=
2500 LYRAN Heavy Cruiser: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. Wanted for the relaunch.
=
2500 LYRAN Light Cruiser: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending.
=
2500 ORION Battlecruiser: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Mongoose asked on 29 Nov to modify the wings and resubmit the graphics. Medium priority. On 10 Dec, Sandrine asked for clarifications of the wings of the four big orions.
=

2500 ORION slaver: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. Medium priority.
=
2500 ORION war destroyer: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Modifications to shorten the impulse prongs and define the wings were sent to Mongoose on 2 Dec 2013.
=
2500 ROMULAN Saberhawk heavy war destroyer: see 2400 listing.
=
2500 ROMULAN Vulture: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. Lower priority.
=
2500 Federation Secret Ship #1: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. Status pending. Unknown priority.
=
================================
POSSIBLE NEW SHIPS LIST: Fed Destroyer (DDG, DD-FJ). Gorn DNC, BB, and DBC. Romulan SeaHawk. Kzinti DD.

Progress since 9 Dec: Orion BR ordered to prototype (10D). Attempts to do a few clear resin ships were abandoned as not workable (10D). Got revised Orion CA-BC-BCH (13D) and posted them for comment.
================================
IF YOU HAVEN'T FIGURED IT OUT you only have to read the above part. The below part is just so you can look up where your favorite ship is.

2500 ORION Battle Raider: CGI started by Mongoose before contract modification. 30 Nov, determined that the last email on 8 Jan 2013 cited an error in the sensor grid; told Mongoose to fix it as NEW SHIP #1. Revisions received from Sandrine on 10 Dec, approve for prototype same day.

Clear Resin Ships: These will NOT be happening (ever). The technology is just not workable at the AOG casting house, which is why they disappeared a long time ago. Sometime next year we will see if some other casting house can do these, but I have zero confidence.
