Star Destroyer Maintenance trench size?


Recommended Posts

A question for the number crunchers out there....

I plan to build a section of the maintenance trench that runs down the side of Star Destroyers. A sort of vertical diorama.

It will be mounted on a redundant 22" x 34" magnetic notice board so it may take a while.

It won't be an exact copy, but very much in the spirit of, with lots of greeblies using whatever the spares boxes yield up.

But I do want to get the size about right in 1/350th scale.

So, The question is, How deep/tall should it be? 

Does anyone out there have a Star Destroyer in whatever scale that they can measure and then convert the numbers to suit?

Thanks, Pete

Lots of lookers at this but no numbers yet. I may have to do a rethink and just do a section of 'A Spaceship' along the lines of a Star Destroyer.

Looking at the trench depth on the Bandai Star destroyer they vary from 7mm to 2mm deep so at 1:5000 scale makes them between 35m and 10m deep.

 

In 1:350 scale that would be 100mm to 28mm deep.

Just what I needed, you are a star, Sir!

I'm guessing at around 100 to 150 mm high then, based on that.

I think 125mm should keep the proportions about right.
