Starship Dimensions

This was on slashdot a while back, but it was overloaded and I couldn't get in. Well, it's working now, and it's very, very cool. There are a few notable missing ships, though...
Starship Dimensions "This site is intended to allow science fiction fans to get an impression of the true scale of their favorite science fiction spacecraft by being able to campare ships accross genres, as well as being able to compare them with contemporary objects with which they are probably familiar. The scales are based on meter-to-pixel ratios so that they are accurate on any platform. The background grid is divided into groups of ten, and larger groups of one hundred pixels, to allow for easy measurement."

    I love that they have Chewbacca, The Stay-Puft Marshmalow Man, King Kong, A Volkswagen Bug, and Godzilla in there for scale. hehe..

      Didn't Godzilla vs King Kong estabish the pair were the same size though? ;)

        In Kingukongu tai Gojira, both monsters are about the same size because they inexplicably resized King Kong from a couple dozen feet tall to about 150 feet tall. They also added some weird attribute where King Kong gets extra strength from electricity, but Godzilla was afraid of it.

        Worst. Apesuit. Ever. ;)

          Fair enough!

          My only other gripe about the site is it has no spaceships from British SF (other than the Eagle from Space: 1999)

          Where's the Liberator, Red Dwarf, and the TARDIS? :)
