Star Wars Size Analyses

A look into what I estimate are "truer" sizes of Star Wars vehicles


Because I like writing

But mainly, it's because I estimate many of the vehicle sizes in my Scale Lists (they have "est" next to them).

While I agree with most of the official dimensions, I take issue with certain ones that just don't quite add up. A lot of these issues are due to disproportionate models from the original trilogy, as well as West End Games reporting erroneous sizes in the 80s. However, I still have issues with certain official sizes, especially when you look at stills of the vehicles in the films.

So, if you're wondering how I arrived at these estimations, please read these articles on their sizes. However, realize these are merely my own estimations. As such, they may change over time as more information becomes available.

Remember, sizes are rarely exact, scales of sci-fi vehicles are often fluid, and this is all science-fiction anyway. Lastly, if you have suggestions or comments regarding the sizes of Star Wars ships, feel free to email me.
