Re: How to figure out scale for models?

Re: Why the Enterprise is an Amazing Design

Wow, not a bad job by a guy who was instructed by Roddenberry not to design the hero ship as either a flying saucer or a rocket. So Jefferies returned with... a ship made up of a saucer connected to a bunch of rockets
