Over on Star Wars.com they posted a video at the end of which there is a preview of some of the new ships which will appear in Season 2 of Rebels. Here are some screen captures - first some McQuarrie A-wings:

I get that the designs are inspired by RM.. But, those a-wings look a little off to me??

They do look a little fat, but I love that they are using the original McQuarrie design for the A-wing.

In fact, I'm really loving the show itself. I didn't think I would at first, but it has grown on me.

If it gets me some new 1/72 kits, I'm all for it.

They pretty much mined all the mcquarrie and pre-production designs. Even Zeb is the original design for Chewbacca.
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Yep. And the Vader mask was stretched a little to match the McQuarrie art as well. I do love all the designs so far.

I'm wondering if we will see the McQuarrie AT-AT design...the one with the ball turret chin cannons. That would make a great scene...and a great model.

Wasn´t the capital Ship also in Clone Wars? Wasn´t it the Medical Frigate at that time?

That's a refit of the Pelta class- in CW, they used them mainly for medical transports.
This one obviously has a nice weapons upgrade.
It's definitely a new CG model too- not modded from CW, but made from scratch- and a lot smoother in the hull panels.
Big improvment.

Man, I wish Rebels would hit Netflix or something- where I live, it's just Comcast and Disney XD is a premium pay scam. No way I'm paying $25 more a month for one show.
