Hey Kurt;
I am having trouble with the scale issue, according to my size chart this ship is 14,500 feet long which is around 4.4196 kilometres in length, so my size chart is way out I'm afraid, you were right, I anticipate the ship to be around 2km in length so will alter it, hope it then makes sense, suggestions?

Frankly I was concentrating on the drawing and used Canis's original size cart from your Kobol Ark which doesn't fit in with my mods does it?

Sorry about the frack up folks, please bear with me on this, scale and dimension aren't my strong point as you can see, I was concentrating on getting the aesthetics and general look right.

I will hold off altering it till someone can confirm this for me - going to settle on 2km length I think, then will change chart if all agree.

I don't want to get too bogged down with this issue as time isn't on my side now I'm back at work full time, want to crack on with episode 9 and supporting drawings if you are all still with me :)

With regards to your second observation Kurt, that will be covered more in future episodes, but as I said earlier, yes I agree with your point in principle totally

Two easy things...change the Raptor on the pad to the Battlestar scale version and use the battlestar scale instead of the one currently used. Those are the easy fixes.

Ok this is right now I think - I hope :o

I estimate the large shuttles to be around 300 feet in length and the Phoenix lander at the bow behind the bridge to be around 100 feet

If you all think this sounds ok I'll go with this

I changed the shuttle to a phoenix lander as it would have been too small to see
