can we see some shots of the bigger ships alongside cannon stuff, so we can get a sense of scale ?

We don't have many larger ships but we have a lot of fighters.

I'm just curious how big a SSD is to, say, an Orion. Or a blockade runner to a corvette etc.

The Blockade Runner and the Corvette are exactly the same things.
For SSD screenies, contact GalacticEmperor. Only he has the model itself.

The SSD will be 17.6 kms long, so it'll be just slightly longer than 8 orions, and slightly shorter than three collossi.

Your models are really well done, very detailed - just like in the movies... ^_^

Is the SSD model really that big...??

I' ve always thought it's about 5-6 times Imperial class (1,6 km * 5-6 = 8 km or 10 km... :confused:

I'm sure that later versions of Super Destroyers were 17,6 km like Eclipse...

I've read the essay about the Executor's lenght...
It is a total canon mess one source states it's 8 km, other 12,8km and  that site 17,6 km...  
Guess your proprtions are good 12,8 km - is a true mammoth ship
( 8 times the ISD...)
Poor  Rebels ;7 - they don't stand a chance in a open combat...

I recall 17.6.

not to ruin things as everyone likes a proper monster ship, but wouldnt it be more practical to have it smaller, like 8km?

i heard somewhere it was meant to be 5 times a reg SD
5x1600=8000

sounds good to me!

It's 11 times a SD (thus 17.6 Kilometers). The five times is a misconception that's been around since the earliest ESB mmovie posters - the actual movie prop is 11 times bigger.

Re: Screenshot comments thread...
It's good to see an Executor in-game with accurate engine counts.  TIE Fighter, anyone? :)
