A sketch for the Valiant could conceivably be buried among sketches we've never seen or a disregarded sketch could serve as a basic concept to come up with a finalized design for the ship.
There are several sketches that led to the Leif Ericson design. I have sometimes wondered whether that
was Jefferies' Valiant.
I think you're on to something; not to take away from Warped9's
"valiant" efforts but I for one wouldn't mind if the Valiant looked like the Leif, since it looks like it could be a descendant of the DY design philosophy.
