    Nice work CMDR! Tiny correction - the diagram says 2 medium hardpoints, rather than 2 large hardpoints.

    Great, but I'm not sure about the length of this vessel. 79m seems to be to short, if you consider this comparsion here:

      I re-checked (because you asked) and actually it came out shorter (72.2M) so I have corrected the drawings.

        shorter? Just how? The comparsion shot clearly shows the ship to be larger than a python - if they got the same cargo scoop size. And even the wiki states that the mamba is the largest mid sized ship in the game...
        And btw - any chance for some of the stations or mega ships?

          I have used the same scale method that I've applied consistently and that's all I can do. I've asked Frontier for the dimensions and their reply was "Hello Anthony, unfortunately we're not able to provide you with ship sizes."
          Because the bitmaps I draw from have perspective applied, it makes accurate sizing very hard. The larger something is, the more distorted it can be. Sadly we can't get a space-suit on and take a tape measure to the hull. Smile

    ...shorter? Just how? In the comparsion shot the mamba is bigger than the both FDL and Python - if we asume that all 3 vessels share the same cargo hatch...
