Description:

Medium detailed model of a MC80 Home One Type Star Cruiser. The model is totally free to use, but the Star Wars copyright belongs to Disney.

Note: Mon Calamari build their ships unique which means no two are alike which makes modelling tricky. Also, the sizes varies a lot, with the flag ship Home One in the movie being a lot larger than the later standardized version. This is the normal size (1200 m) version.

    This is a beautiful job! It looks exactly like the film. I love the attention to detail, for example the single hangar on the starboard side and dual hangars on the port side.

    Thank you! Part of the fun is to learn all the small details that makes the ships special, but it's quite tricky since there are so many variations, from the movies, games and other sources. They seldom match each other. Like this for example, it's supposed to be 1200m but that's way to small for a Lambda shuttle to fit through the hangar port, which is shown both in Return of the Jedi and the X-Wing PC games.

    That's interesting. I did some digging and found that the Star Wars Wiki "Legends" page (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Home_One/Legends) states that "direct scaling of Home One in Return of the Jedi implies a minimum length of approximately 2.5km." It also mentions a variety of lengths given from various sources such as the Expanded Universe such as 1300m and 1400m in addition to the 1200m canon. The "Legends" page also states that the "most-quoted size of 1,200 meters apparently originated with West End Games, and is often presented as the generic size of MC80 Star Cruisers."

    Yes, you're right. I've also seen mentioned up to 3200 meters which would make it twice as big as an Imperial Star Destroyer. It's very difficult to get an accurate measurement. Another example is the A-Wing, with the canon being that it's 9.6 meters, but calculations shows it to be either 4.8 or 7 meters depending on the shot in the movies.

    I think 7 meters is probably the accurate measurement. The Eta-2 Actis class Interceptor in Revenge of the Sith is 5.47 m (you get an accurate human reference from the shot when Obi-Wan is getting in), which is similar in size to the A-Wing. The nose seems a bit longer on the Eta-2, but the A-Wing has very long engines.

    I agree. 7 meters is the most likely size, but the canon still says 9.6 meters. I think that's because fans are more obsessed with details than the filmmakers. They focused on making a great movie, and the models are extremely detailed, but it's not always things add up when you look very closely at it.

    From the reading that I've done, a lot of the measurements that are questionable were derived from toy and model manufacturers after the fact, and, I believe, the Star Wars roleplaying game books.

    That's probably very true. Maybe they have the same problem figuring out the "correct" measurements :)
