That turbolift looks barely tall enough for one person to stand up comfortably in. Perhaps there's a height restriction for serving on these ships.

Seems that I suffer the same problem as El Gato, I cannot see the image; I tried different browsers, and none can show the image... :(

Oh yes, that's a nice cutaway indeed. It'd love to have a poster of it.

OK, not I can see it. Apparently my laptop was the one with issues....

Can someone check the scale? Those people look awfully small relative to the ship. My understanding was that the bridge was actually sunken into the first deck, that's why the dome is relatively flat. This poster makes it look like the dome encompassed the entire bridge. And there's no way you can fit a turbolift into those pylons, not at the size the ship was supposed to be and not with those spindly pylons (according to the ILM size chart, an Oberth is supposed to be 120 m long). This poster gets away with it because it upsizes it, with a length of 148.77 m.

If we're honest, those extra 28.77 metres really wouldn't make a difference. Like you said, there's absolutely no way turbolifts, their shafts, and their mechanisms could fit in those nacelle pylons.

The Oberth-class was a poorly thought-out idea from start to finish.
DANGER. SPACE DOORS ARE CLOSED.

True. Those additional meters don't mean much, not to the size they're depicting here.

I just also noticed they fudged the turbolift. The path they depict does not match the shape of the pylon:
