Full Thrust Convoy TQX-5551: Outbound for the Frontier at last

After a week of showcasing the ships in this convoy in smaller lots, we've finally got some big full-group shots.
 
 
Total of 30 ships plus a pair of small cutters which can be seen docked to two of the ships as well as being their own seperate models.

 
Fourteen civilian ships in a bunch of different styles, fourteen escort warships of varying sizes, a big UNSC science ship that kind of straddles the line between civilian and military, and a huge auxiliary warship built off a converted military fleet tender.
 
Most models are from Ground Zero Games' Full Thrust range, with a few Brigade Models and Silent Death minis mixed in.  Includes the following:
 
2 NAC Troutbridge frigates (GZG)
1 NAC Fort Carstairs auxiliary warship (converted GZG fleet tender)
