Space Ship Dimensions
“what size is your ship ?”
I located some more renders showing the scale of the Galactica against other designs, including a single image of the Galactica given the 2 mile scale with the 110 ft long shuttle along side near the exit tube for the 28 ft or 30 ft long vipers, which I think add up to 13 feet high in total.
I would love the Galactica too reach the 2 mile scale, it’s a great size but the that image dispels the 2 mile long scale for me.. it looks wrong.. also an image with a Nimitz–class super carriers along side at 1092 feet which is really inspiring
Anyway that is my view.
I plan on building my own Galactica model sometime in the future, basing on the scale of the Vipers and Shuttle been given consideration.
The Battlestar Galactica Scrapbook mentions that Dykstra’s team extrapolated the length of a the shuttle from the size of the windows to be around 110 feet. For practical purposes, the art director arbitrarily cut the scale in half and a 33 foot long section of the shuttle was built.
