Wing Commander ship design inspirations

@Lilja 's recent thread about the t-shirt with the Raptor-esque fighter got me thinking about the origins of some of our familiar Wing Commander craft. Before that discussion was had, I didn't have a clue the Raptor had an immediate design inspiration.

So I've been thinking about designs, and tributes and here's what I've come up with.

Can anybody suggest some more?

Arrow and A-wing (Star Wars)




Razor and Viper (Battlestar Galactica)




Broadsword and Starlancer Bomber





Edit: Ahh crap, the movie Broadsword pre-dates the Starlancer model.

That's a good one! I'd forgotten about the Batwing entirely, haven't really followed Batman since I was very small.

I was going to suggest that the Galaxy has DNA from the Millenium Falcon, but looking at the two side by side I just can't find enough in common.

Here's another that probably goes from WC to something else... Strakha to Centauri Vorchan-class cruiser (B5):
