Well, Scooby, technically a year just consists of "a few months".
The bad news is: Time seems to speed up the older you get. Shortly after my 28th birthday I met an old friend from school and he said "Man, we haven't met for some time, that must be 2 years or so" and (after I finally remembered his name) I realized that I last met him almost eight years ago... My Grandma swears that time is running at a factor of 4 now, compared to the 1950s.
So things are getting worse in general, but the good news is: Your models get even better than they already were!
Can you post some screenshots again when you complete new versions of your ships? Pleeaaase!!!
