They're pretty much all posted on the Forum, some are moving very slowly, but with little time due to the big'n nasty RL project it's ok.
Currently learning Inkscape (used to work with Illustrator) making cockpit panels, and fitting in the other bits & bobs (have looked at ways to implement the skins (- will proceed this weekend)

Speaking of which, how far along are you in debugging the Nova mesh?

no further, not on top of my list, cockpit will take most of my free time in the forseeable future (still hope to get something released with your nice skins soon:)).

Yeah, the Nova mesh is something you should consider working on at some point. By the way, the reskins were part of the original 2013 release of the Aurora Starfury. With that in mind, it would probably be best to designate each individual Starfury by skin rather than by number. Here's an updated .zip file with the Starfuries designated as such:

While we're at it, here's a collection of screenshots showcasing some of the Starfury reskins:

What's your progress so far on the .ini files for the Aurora-type Starfury?

And while we're on the subject, there are a few B5 vessels that could use mesh updates at some point in order to allow for better shading effects, namely the Thunderbolt-type Starfury, White Star (both standard and advanced), Blue Star, ISA Excalibur, IPX Icarus, and Centauri atmospheric shuttle. In addition, while they don't feature in any of my B5 system scenarios, the Aeolus-class towship and Earthforce One are also in need of such updates. Again, these don't need to necessarily get done right now, just eventually.

By the way, here are the SC4 config files for the vessels in question. Incidentally, I've also added docking ports to the Thunderbolt-type Starfuries.

I started on the B4 station but have put it back on the shelf, the mesh is workable but it needs a complete remapping.
This on the other hand was a relatively straight-forward import

Pirate Station from Solcommand
but no details on mass etc,?

and I managed to get a couple of Shadow vessels done!

But again no idea on dimensions?

Here are the approximate lengths of the various Shadow vessels:

Battle crab: 990 meters
Carrier 1,500 meters
Scout ship: 356 meters
Fighter (both regular and advanced): 15.3 meters
Chaser: 20 meters
Helix: 20 meters
Looter: 20 meters
Guard: 40 meters
Seeker: 18 meters
