I like the DSC/DIS designs so far.  But these reinterpretations are pretty cool too.  Nice work!

I have to say that they're definitely a lot better than the spike-filled ... things that are in the actual show.

I like your versions of the Klingon Ships from DIS. They look more utilitarian and fit for mass production.  The sarcophagus ship in particular looks much more studier at the nacelle connection points and manages to look older while not looking like an overblown Sagrada Familia.
So, do you remember me
In those moments just before you sleep?
I know you remember me
Swear to me the memory isn't seen
Promise me
That it doesn't make your heart beat
Doesn't make your heart beat

Wow. You really pumping these out like a machine, yes? All of them have different attitudes, Which I like. I really like the Carrier ship with the launch pads.

Okay, time to address the proverbial "elephant in the room"...the D-7.  I have seen stills of what ST: Discovery has called the D-7 and it is a travesty to us fans (again, I love the design, just not for the ship it was supposed to represent).  So, originally I was not going to do the D-7 as we all know what she is supposed to look like (even all her re-interpretations and re-uses are generally more true to form then what we have seen in ST:Discovery), so I saw no point in redrawing her... But I then gave it some thought and figured, why not take this opportunity to add to the D-7 family as a fielded variant in the Klingon fleet.  So here she is... The D-7XL (now for all you aircraft aficionados you will get this designation's connection to the F-16XL).

Enjoy:

I rather like that little one.  Wonder if there's a Klingon word for Soyokaze.  ;D

Well, here is the TOS Klingon Bird-of-Prey that had to be made.

Looks like the Duras family has been conspiring with Romulans again...

Okay, time to address the proverbial "elephant in the room"...the D-7.  I have seen stills of what ST: Discovery has called the D-7 and it is a travesty to us fans (again, I love the design, just not for the ship it was supposed to represent).  So, originally I was not going to do the D-7 as we all know what she is supposed to look like (even all her re-interpretations and re-uses are generally more true to form then what we have seen in ST:Discovery), so I saw no point in redrawing her...

Playing devil’s advocate for a moment…  Did you know that there are two Akula-class submarines?  There’s the one that the Russians call “Akula-class” and there’s the one NATO calls “Akula-class”.  Perhaps this is a similar situation, Starfleet calls one ship a “D-7” while the Klingons call a different ship “D-7”.
