I think you all should see this. Maybe they should feature a bigger Eagle and other Space 1999 craft: Hey Four Mad Men, you could send them one of your side views...

I like this. A wonderful display of spaceships of all genres.

Quite amusing to drag the Rama cylinder across the screen and compare it to the Death Star. Sci-Fi meets fantasy!

And I always had a taste for REALLY big constructions, present and imagined. A good place to see them here, indeed.

The eagle is listed as 68 meters. That seems about twice as much as is reasonable...?

Yes, 31 metres would be considerably more accuate.

Maybe the measurement was based on a set of orthographic blueprints made by L Allen Everhart back in the 1980's. I have a set of them. Though beautifully detailed, they show a human for scale... about half the size he should be! (And that's about half the size if you're using, say, Baldassari's measurements for a "real" Eagle. It looks more like about 1/3 size compared to shots from "Another Time, Another Place.")
