Jove ship models soon to be removed from EVE client

Jovians are the fifth, technologically superior, elusive race of New Eden. For years their ships were in the game, even despite the fact that the race is non-playable. Sometimes one could see them, when CCP Actors were flying Jovian ships during live events. According to these two tweets below, Jovian ships will soon be no more:

Sarmatiko found jovian ships removed
CCP Explorer confirms

Technically it’s possible to download ship 3D assets from CCP CDN and preserve them on external server, which means it would always be possible to view them in 3D using CCP WebGL. Unfortunately there is also some legal implications (this is CCP’s intelectual property after all, and they would have to explicitly allow copying these ship assets to a third party website). If the answer was ‘yes’, I would be more than happy to run and maintain such “virtual museum” for EVE ships.

What are we talking about? Of course about these little fellows:

Jove-Eidolon Jove-Phantom Jove-Wraith Jove-Specter Jove-Visitant

Until CCP removes these ships from their CDN, you can still view these ships in 3D in LMeve Database:
