To be more specific, if you use Internet Explorer, you can do this.

Hrm, their Serenity FireFly ship seems to be a lot bigger than the Millenium Falcon. I would have put those on about the same scale...

I always assumed the Serenity was a fair size larger. It's got like three decks, including a very large cargo bay. Falcon on the other hand is one deck, and it's fairly cramped.

Yeah, but it seems too thin compared to Serenity. A man fitting in the cockpit of the Falcon seems smaller than one in Serenity. But eh, who cares, the site is pretty cool Smile

I ran across a website some time ago arguing the size of the Falcon. It's been a while but I believe he felt the proper length was closer to 50 meters than 27.

I wish I could find that website.

I think that was Robert Brown's site. If it is, then it's now offline.

Ya it is really cool. I have been just messing around with it ever since I found it. I like the -10 where the super star destroyer is at the top. I take a regular star destroyer up next to it and it really shows how big the super star destroyer actually is. Its pretty close to 11 times smaller than the super star destroyer.

That's a shame. Like I say, it was a long time ago, but I remember it being an interesting sight.
