In a Quest

to find some starship to scale with some other starship, I turn to MicroMachines. Perhaps a small ship in "micro scale" (that is made to be about 3 inches long) might match a larger ship model kit in "box scale".

  8. Guesstimate based on the Excelsior barely fitting through the doors (in the film, the Enterprise looks like a tight fit) One appeared in TNG that was large enough to allow the Enterprise-D in. Multiply scale by about 2.5 (if you assume the E-D barely fit through the doors.)

Summarry:

The Original Enterprise is a close match to the original Enterprise (the nuclear powered carrier.) Also to the Klingon and Romulan and to those ships based on the Movie Enterprise saucer and to Voyager.

The shuttles Galilleo and Berman are in the same scale.

Comparing to model kits we have:

Summary:

I don't have the Star Destroyer model kit or the Hoth diaramas which might be to scale with the Rebel Cruiser (or Medical Frigate) and the fighters, respectively.

A Millennium Falcon on the scale of most of the fighters would be on the order of 9 centimeters (3 5/8")
We could hope for a Rebel Blockade Runner model kit about 20 inches long and set up various battles from the X-Wing CD-ROM. (An Imperial Star Destroyer would be about 18 feet!)

Versus

If you don't mind mixing the Universes, note that the Falcon is about to scale with the large model Enterprise-nil kit and Voyager and the MicroMachine Runabout.
The Rebel Blockade Runner is to scale with the multiple Enterprises sets. All we need is a two-foot Star Destroyer!
