I thought it resembles the Wind class strike carrier more than a Skimkish.

I looked at the Wind Class also, but I think the aft section looks more like the Skimkish (or at least an interpretation of it - I never could quite get a feel for its actual appearance from the Sup 9 picture).

At any rate, the deciding factor for me ultimately was the tonnage. It is right next to a Gionetti (30kton). The Skimkish is 29kton, but the Wind is 75kton. I think it is too small for a Wind Class vessel.

As I look at the Aslan ships, the one on the left looks like the 10,000 ton cruiser from MT rebellion sourcebook or one of the ships from page 61 of same.

I agree, but the projections look too thick for a Skimkish, still, I concede that it is too small for a Wind, so your'e probably right.

At this scale, the projections on the Skimkish would snap off in a moment if the miniature strictly matched the illustration in Supplement 9.

Some of the other designs required modification. For example, the bridge on the Gionetti had to be modified because it would have produced severe undercuts in the mold, which would have prevented good castings and would have worn out the mold in short order.

What material are they made of? cast "lead"/pewter, or resin?

I would think 3d printers could pop out "plastic" versions quickly.

Pewter.

A lot slower and more expensive that you'd guess. Resolution is a real problem, as well. Many of the folks on The Miniatures Page have complained about the quality of ships from Shapeways, for example, because the "pixelation" of the surface is so obvious when the miniature is painted. Your dT/parsec my vary, of course.

Unfortunately, 3D printing isn't a panacea for strength issues. The Fine Detail material that Shapeways uses will snap when you have long projections as fine as those shown in the Supplement 9 illustration. The Strong, Flexibilty material can't produce as much detail, and on a model as small and detailed as this, that's a big loss.
