The main problem that I see regarding ship images comes with there being so few top down views,is there a reasonable program where you can generate a 3D image from an oblique reference image? Then grab a top down view off the 3D image?
It would be a slow process, but, if you also own "Galactic Civilizations 2" you could use it's custom ship builder to make your ships and rotate them to take a picture (screen capture) of them from the top down view-point that DW uses. Then you'd need the art software to scale down your screen capture and crop the pic to the right sizes (photoshop should work).
It would be a slow pain in the rear to do but in theory it should work just fine.

What do I see? I see time as it affects all things. Human flesh whithers and dies before my eyes. Flowers bloom, only to fade. Trees drop green leaves, never to regain them. In my sight, it is always winter, always night. ~ Raistlin Majere
