Does anyone have any of these great ships that they do not want anymore?

I have HMS Victory and Bucentaure but I am looking to build a squadron of French, Spanish and British. I have only recently returned to Naval war gaming by participating in the Sails of Glory kickstarter only to discover Skytrex has gone into receivership (very sad) just when I am starting to collect.

I have a small number of 1/700th scale Portsmouth minis:

I wish I had some as well. Have they really gone into receivership? I know they're cutting back on stock, but a website still shows some 1/700 for sale? As for the larger classic ships, I don't think they even show up on the online auction sites with any consistency.

Here's an update on the ships that used to be produced via Skytrex. This information comes via The Miniatures Page. I do not know if we can get these in the States or if they've really started production or not, but they must be closer than they've been to put up photos, etc.
