Nice work all around.  I'm extremely jealous - haven't gotten a chance to even try fiddling with the Resistance kits yet, and barring a commission I don't see the budget stretching to do so anytime soon.

Got quite a few Dropfleet conversions and kitbashes on my own blog if you want some more potential ideas for using up leftovers:

I think the gallery of space station kits builds is still my most popular post ever by views.  Certainly my largest:

Agreed.  The nose art on the UCM ships is a particularly nice touch.  Definitely one of those "why didn't I think of that?" ideas.  Might work well on the PHR hulls too, maybe as decals - they've got so much smooth blank space for that kind of thing.

Best plastic kit ever made for starship gamers if you ask me - although I haven't gotten a chance to play with the Resistance ships yet.  I suspect using parts from both the stations and Resistance will make for some incredible designs, especially if you're not married to the idea of keeping the result Dropfleet-legal.

I'm inclined to agree with you on how pretty the Santiagos are, although I'm also a big fan on their monitor designs for sheer chunkiness - they're almost on par with the Resistance destroyers for that.
