Speaking of huge StarShips (Macross / Starwars) dimensions..

Speaking of large star ship (Macross/Robotech Type) dimensions...

http://www.merzo.net/

This site is intended to allow science fiction fans to get an impression of the true scale of their favourite science fiction spacecraft by being able to compare ships across genres, as well as being able to compare them with contemporary objects with which they are probably familiar.

Apparently, it turns out that the Macross SDF-1 Fortress isn’t as massive as it looks in the series, especially compared to some of the other Starwars ships or Zendraedi flagships. Even the Trade Federation carrier droid battleship is larger!
I wonder how they managed to fit a city of 60000 people inside the SDF-1 it?!

Surprisingly, the Bodolza/ Zentraedi Mobile Command Base, is much larger than the Star Wars Death Star II!
But what I find shocking is Unicron’s size! In the grid he looks larger than Bodolza’s Command Base, the Death Stars & the ID4 mother-ship put together!
Also, I never new that the ID4 Mothership was Mushroom shaped!

By far, it's the best site of its kind!
It would have been perfect if it had the Starwars Trade federation (Invisible Hand), Techno Union & Banking Class star ships.

These images are not the right scale by the way, they should be viewed in the gridded home site.

it would be interesting to see a pic of The Will in scale with the other ships.

oh, I've been to this site recently, very interesting indeed.

in fact the SDF-1 with its small size, its quite impossible to have 70,000 civilians and a total of 86,000 including crew and military personnel.

The Will (Amaterasu's flagship) is only 3+km in length, so it'll be juz a bit smaller than the Zentradi flagship, whilst the flagship for the Empress of Flame is 90km!!~ :shock:

Good point. That sure puts the Super Empire's technical achievements into perspective. I'd bet that the Empress Flame could single handedly take out both the death star AND unicron. :D

I don't mean to nitpick, but the english volumes had the Empress Flame's flagship at 75km. Is this another discrepancy between the english and japanese versions?

You should get yourself a bigger island... like mine, for instance. It's fairly large. :wink:

The Jagd could take out Unicron!

Then again, Unicron would probably just eat the Jagd and absorb its technology. That would be bad.

I can scan images for The Will but they will be black and white (unless someone can point out color images to me). If someone could write a Will profile it would help.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

Yeah, we need to get The Will, The Belle Creal and other starships of FSS scanned. Now that the majority of MH's are done (with the exception of a few of the more obscure ones) thats something we can look into doing in the near future.
Shinei!
