Airship Designs in The Chronicles of Crosarth

In drawing The Chronicles of Crosarth
, one of the biggest challenges is maintaining consistency not only in mechanical design, but also in the scale of the ships. To help myself out though, I make sure I keep a reference image to demonstrate the rough scale between these ships. I think the reference is interesting though, so I thought I'd share it with you.
There are only a few ships on the chart at the moment, as we've only really seen three airships in the comic (well, there was a fourth, but it was tiny and you'd have to be looking for it). I've included a ship I'm currently working on the design of as well, just because I like the way it's turning out (and because it will come into the story in a few chapters).
I have a bunch more concept designs that I will eventually be finishing off and adding to this chart over time (The Hummingbird and the Hawk are both new ship designs in the story, so I've had to design the airships they're replacing for one), and obviously the Hawk in this image is still missing it's turrets... but that's just because I'm still designing them.
I know where they go on the ship at least.
