Check In / Check Out Replication

Hi All,

I'm trying to create a script in modelbuilder to automate replication through check in/check out.  What I'm struggling with is how to bring newly created feature classes into the loop.  The main problem I'm running into is being able to select all feature classes in the SDE to bring into the checkout version.  The create replica tool lets me add all the existing feature classes in the SDE to the checkout file geodatabase, but if a new one is created in there it will not be included. 

Also, if a new feature class is created in the checked out file geodatabase, it is not brought into the SDE during synchronization for some reason.  I've included the export, compare, and import replica schema tools in the model, which apparently only deal with attribute schema and not new feature classes. 

I've attached the model for you to take a look at.  If anyone has any ideas I would be VERY appreciative.  Thank you!
