Default Need size info

Hello all,

I've been searching the net for awhile and cannot find a definitive answer to how big (length, width, height) some TOS Colonial ships are.

I'm seeking the measurements for the Battlestar, Viper, Cylon Raider and Basestar, and the Colonial shuttle.

From what I've gathered, these measurements have been in heated debate for yahrens...

I need these from a model standpoint. So far I've gotten the following lengths:

Basestar: 1768 meters (but I thought they were bigger than Battlestars)
Battlestar: 1853 meters
Colonial Shuttle: 20 meters
Raider: 13.8 meters
Viper: 8.85 meters

I really don't think these values work, though. The models just don't look right next to each other. The viper is about as long as the shuttle... which doesn't look right at all. I kinda want them all to be scaled correctly.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

The link BST give will give you some ideas of the scale.

Basestar: 1768 meters
Battlestar: 1853 meters : 6080ft about the right scale from my efforts
Colonial Shuttle: 20 meters: (Wrong ...Shuttle is about 33.528 m or 110ft)
Raider: 13.8 meters: ( also about right)
Viper: 8.85 meters: 29ft (about right)

See, I knew the shuttle didn't look right... lol. But I always thought the Basestar was BIGGER than the Battlestar? From those spec's it seems it's slightly smaller... maybe the round shape made it look bigger...

One ship I forgot to mention, though, was the Ship of Lights.

See now... that says the Basestar is bigger... heh. This is a shot of what I have the scale at:


(Sorry it's so dark, I threw it together in like 20 seconds just for the screenshot.)

I currently have the Ship of Lights (not pictured) at 520meters... tiny compaired to the Battlestar.

I currently have the Basestar slightly larger than the Battlestar.

Soo... no idea on the size of the Ship of Lights? I have googled till my fingers hurt, then googled some more and still haven't found any reference to the dimensions of the Ship of Lights.

I made this in 3DS Max 9... very hurriedly, currently @ 518 Meters :
