Well with the first ship, I wanted to make it look like the turret is inside the ship itself since it kind of looks odd is its centre sticks out over other sections (for me anyway) and because my subconscious would kill me if I made it an independent turret with it's current stats. Though I am considering moving it above one of the engines.
As for the second ship, went and widened the frontal part though I'm not really sure how I should approach detailing it since I need large, flat sections for the guns.
That and the front is supposed to look much less fragile to the rear of the ship which supposed to be pretty much the only way to get rid of it (frontal assault gets shredded by means of shell wall).
And the details are my way of telling "Aim here for massive damage!" since I'm kind of opposed to putting shinies on my warships.TL DR:
Made it fatter, unsure on how to make its face prettier than its arse. Other than putting a paper bag over it, anyway.
By the way, it's largely inspired by This huge picture.
EDIT: The Dart. The smallest result of my fighter project. This one is slightly bigger than a Stock9.
First combat test of a squadron of Darts against a ship equipped with anti fighter cluster rockets
(The closest I could get to cluster missiles) should be coming up
